Leave to cool a while. 2 Place the ancho chillies in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside for 30 minutes, then drain and chop. 3 Remove the papery skins from the garlic and place in a mini blender with the dried chillies, achiote seeds, herbs, vinegar, onion and spices. Add two to three tablespoons of water and blend to a smooth, thick puree. Stir in the sugar and season to taste. 4 Place the pork belly in a shallow non-metallic dish, then smear on two-thirds of the chilli puree until completely covered. Cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 6-8 hours, but overnight is best. 5 Preheat the oven to 180c/350f/Gas 4. Place the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water until melted.
