Place canned tomatoes, jalapenos, chipotle pepper, sugar, salt, pepper, and all spices in food processor. Sauté chopped onions, garlic, and dates in about 2 Tblsp. bacon grease, and add to food processor. Toast the almonds and add to food processor. De-stem and de-seed the dried peppers and soak in hot water to cover for about 30 minutes or until soft, then chop and add them to food processor mixture. Add chicken broth and process until smooth.
