Aztec Chili Hot Chocolate

I think this is off, I don't remember, but it's lovely, and perfect for keeping warm. If I don't have chocolate, I use cocoa or hot chocolate instead of real chocolate. The chili chocolate mixture is also said to induce... romance!


  1. Simmer milk in a saucepan with vanilla bean, cinnamon and chili. Heat through for about a minute.
  2. Whisk in grated chocolate, and continue to simmer until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and let 'steep' for another 2 minutes.
  4. Strain out the spices and serve.

One can avoid buying the extra ingredients for this. Just buy Mexican chocolate and shave it into your hot milk. I make this on every historical outing I go on... very good! Thanks
