Add vinegar, stir quickly to deglaze skillet. Add chicken stock, chocolate, chiles, cumin and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced slightly, about 20 minutes. Remove chile halves; discard. Carefully transfer mixture to blender container; cover. Blend until smooth. Makes about 2 cups. Mole sauce may be refrigerated for up to 7 days or frozen for later use.
