Prepare the chiles as described above in the recipe for Mole Poblano Picante. Heat the lard or oil in a skillet, and fry first the sausages, then the pork, and last the chicken pieces until golden.
Add more fat, if necessary. Transfer to a heavy flameproof casserole with a lid. In the electric blender combine the chiles, onion, garlic, tomato, sesame seeds, nuts, and oregano, and blend until smooth. In the fat remaining in the skillet, cook the puree for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the stock. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour over the meats in the casserole; cover; and simmer gently, over a low heat, for about 1 hour, or until the chicken is tender when pierced with a fork.
