Add chicken and cook 6-8 minutes, stirring to break up, until cooked through. As water evaporates, add 1 Tbsp water at a time to keep the pan from drying out.
In a food processor or blender, combine 2 Tbsp water, soaked almonds, chicken broth, paprika, cacao, paprika, oregano, cumin, coriander, garlic powder, and cinnamon. Process until smooth.
