1. Place ancho chile in small bowl, and cover with boiling water. Soak 10 minutes, or until soft. Drain, remove stem and seeds, and thinly slice.
2. Heat 1 Tbs. oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion, paprika, and ancho chile; sauté 6 minutes, or until onion turns golden. Add pimiento and garlic, then broth; cook 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Stir in tomatoes and their juice. Tear bread into small pieces, and add to skillet, along with almonds. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 10 to 12 minutes.
4. Stir in vinegar and remaining 1 Tbs. oil. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Transfer mixture to food processor, and pulse until chunky-smooth.
