Mexican Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is an all-time favorite, especially during the cold winter months.  Although traditional hot chocolate is always delicious, try this version if you’re looking for a new taste!


  • 1 cup milk (whole, skim, or soy)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinammon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar


In a small saucepan, on medium-low heat, pour in the milk, cocoa powder, chili powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar.

Whisk until the hot chocolate is nice and frothy, about 1 minute.  Top with whipped cream or marshmallows, and enjoy!

Makes 1 cup of hot chocolate.
