  1. 3 large dried chipotle chiles, stemmed and seeded
  2. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
  4. 4 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  5. 6 cups Rich Turkey Stock or low-sodium chicken broth
  6. 6 pounds collard greens, stems and inner ribs discarded, leaves cut into 1-inch ribbons (about 28 cups)
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate or 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  1. Using kitchen shears, cut the chiles into very thin strips. In a stockpot, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the onion, garlic and chiles and cook over high heat until the garlic is just beginning to brown, about 7 minutes. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Add the collard greens by large handfuls and stir to wilt each batch before adding more. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook over moderately low heat until the collards are tender, about 40 minutes. 
  2. Transfer 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid to a small bowl and stir in the tamarind concentrate, then stir this mixture into the collards. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the collards and their liquid to a large bowl and serve.
Make Ahead The greens can be refrigerated overnight.
