I love hot chocolate especially when it's made from scratch! This recipe is from "Vegetarian Times, Low-Fat and Fast Mexican". The cayenne pepper is optional but I really like the bite it adds to the hot chocolate!
I made up this soup recipe last summer. I use Jackson-Triggs Merlot - a great Ontario wine. I used bottled roasted red peppers as I didn't have any fresh red peppers at the time. Feel free to substitute fresh roasted red peppers.
