Aztec Chili Hot Chocolate

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Luschka

I think this is off about.com, 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!

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
