Expert Tips

If making this recipe for a big party, double or triple the ingredients accordingly.

A few years ago, I was caught in a lightning storm during a dark December night while driving back from a party. As I was taking a hair-pin turn, I hit a massive pot-hole and heard a loud pop from the front of my car. As it turned out, I had a flat tire. After fixing that, I arrived home to find that someone had taken my parking spot. So I had to park 4 blocks away from my house! I had forgotten to bring an umbrella, so you can imagine how I arrived. When I walked in, I plopped all my things on the floor and found a cup of steaming, spicy hot chocolate that my mom had made for me. Suddenly, the whole getting-caught-in-the-rain disaster was history! Here's the recipe for you to warm up your body this winter season.

Directions

  • 1 In a pot over medium flame, add in chile de árbol and water. Bring to a boil.
  • 2 Once water is boiling, add in Mexican chocolate and mix until chocolate is completely dissolved.
  • 3 Remove chile from the watery chocolate mixture and discard.
  • 4 Pour in evaporated milk and stir to combine.
  • 5 Pour hot chocolate into cups, and top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground chile de árbol.
