Slice the plantains into large slices and cook in the same oil until they are light brown, then put them in the bowl with the chiles. Fry the almonds, raisins, peanuts, sesame seeds, and garlic separately in the oil, adding more oil if necessary. Add all to the bowl. Mix the fennel seeds, canela, cloves, chocolate, tortillas, peppercorns, and sugar. Blend the mixture in a blender, in batches, adding a little water at a time until all the ingredients are blended. Pour the blender ingredients into the bowl and mix. To make the paste, add a few cups of the mixture to the blender and puree with a little water until it is the consistency of peanut butter. Empty into another large bowl or pot. Continue pureeing a few cups at a time. Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a large, deep pot and fry the paste for 15 minutes. CAUTION: The paste splatters, so fry carefully! Reduce the heat and simmer at the very lowest possible heat for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Mole paste is traditionally served diluted with broth as a sauce over chicken and/or rice.
