One cold afternoon in Boston, I took a tour of the Taza Chocolate factory and got to try their many stone-ground chocolates. You’ve probably seen those big, round discs of Taza chocolate at natural food stores, cafes, and bookshops. (I totally get the appeal of chocolate and books by the way.) One of their flavors is a Mexican chocolate, which I didn’t quite understand at the time, as it’s flavored with cayenne pepper.

Years after the tour I tried it in Seattle, remembering my spicy nibbles years before. Ever since, whenever I see Mexican hot chocolate, I lose my mind a little and feel the need to tell everyone. “Mexican hot chocolate is soooo good, you guys.” And like the hot version, this spicy cold edition is sooo good. And cayenne pepper is also soooo good for you – it aids in digestion, stimulates circulation, and supports weight loss just to name a few benefits. What’s not to love about Mexican chocolate?!

This recipe comes from my cookbook, The Wicked Good Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.
