  Mexico Mexican
  Servings: 6 cups

Goes Well With: cold weather


  • In a heavy saucepan, combine (but do not heat yet):
  • 2 cups double heavy cream
  • 4 cups milk (2% or other)
  • 2 - 3 dried New Mexican red chiles, such as Poblanos (snip them open with scissors)
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 1/2 tsp dried cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2-3 heaping Tbsp dark Dutch processed cocoa powder


  1. Put in the fridge overnight, covered.
  2. Strain through a sieve. Add 4 - 5 Tbsp cane sugar. Heat, stirring gently. Serve with whipped cream.
  3. Option: to make a great vegan or "non-dairy" hot chocolate, substitute soy milk for the cream and milk and use non-dairy whipped topping to garnish. -OR- you can use mineral water it will give you a very deep chocolatey taste.
