Mexican Hot Chocolate, Channeling Montezuma… but not his revenge

On weekends like this when its too cold and dry to frost, and going outside results in chapped lips and frostbitten earlobes, nothing beats a mug of hot chocolate. I used to reach for the Nesquik, until I had Mexican hot chocolate. There’s something to be said for super old recipes that stand the test of time. I’m certain that I’m bastardizing it, as there is no Aztec emperor to make it for me. However, this is my recipe for it!


Mexican hot chocolate for two!

Two mug fulls of milk (approx 3 cups)

2 tablespoons of unsweetened chocolate

1/4 cup of sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp  cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp chili powder

Heat up your milk until it is just steaming. Add the unsweetened chocolate powder, and whisk it in. Add the salt, sugar, cinnamon cayenne pepper and chili powder. Whisk in the rest of your ingredients, and serve it up.
