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.

Ingredients

  • 1 chile de árbol, stem removed
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 disks Mexican chocolate
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • Whipped cream to garnish
