Sopa de Albóndigas Curiosas

A perfect NYE lunch in preparation for the major eating that will be going on later, this is basically Tortilla Soup, but adapted to what I had on hand.. meaning no black beans, no chicken, no tortillas.
I did, however, use
red onion, half a sliced fennel bulb, tomatoes, avocado, carrots, corn, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, oregano..
and leftover Broccoli Cauliflower Balls I used as dumplings or albondigas.
Topped with a sliver of fresh goat cheese, a squeeze of lime, and a few drops of Oolala and 
OOooOoohh nice.

I love all the different textures in this soup, especially how the avocado gives it a creamy contrast.

I was in the mood for Mexican.  I'm searching for a Mole recipe that would work without necessarily using tomatillos, pasilla chilies, and ancho chilies (which I haven't found yet in Lyon) but still being authentic.
I have some 100% dark chocolate that would be perfect to use in this since it's practically inedible.
I'm not saying 100% dark chocolate is inedible, but I recently changed from Pralu to Bonnat and I just don't find the Bonnat one very palatable.

Does anyone have a good recipe for me?  Or some pasilla and ancho chilies?
