ingredients

1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup boiling water
ground chiles to taste

directions

Aztec Chocolate: Grate the unsweetened chocolate into a bowl and cover it with a little of the boiling water. Mash the mixture into a paste. Add the rest of the water and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer until frothy. Add the pepper and chilies to liven up the drink.

The chocolate will not totally dissolve and will have a grittiness to it. For a more authentic drink let the mixture cool and then beat until frothy and drink.

Spanish Chocolate: Follow the directions for the Aztec Chocolate omitting the pepper and chilies and add 3 teaspoons of sugar, plus a dash of cinnamon.

REVIEW: recipe rating
it is definintly different for someone who is not used to bitter stuff. I am making this for extra credit thing for my world studies class. I used 1 teaspoon of chili powder and that did the trick to being able to taste a little bit of heat on the back of your tongue. Not something that i would drink daily but certainly a good recipe.

This drink tastes exactly the way you think it would: spicy and rich and formidably bitter. The vanilla mellows it somewhat, but if you don't like dark chocolate you're going to hate this. Personally, I like it better than coffee. I used high-quality baking cocoa and red pepper flakes and fluffed up all the ingredients in a coffee press.
