Homemade Mexican Hot Chocolate

I was just about to droop finishing my writing assignments so I made myself a cup of real hot Mexican Hot Chocolate to keep my eyes open. An easy way to spice up your regular hot chocolate drink with a dash of cinnamon and red chilli powder and it only takes just a few minutes. Moreover you can modify the recipe as per you taste. Serve this yummy cuppa with whipped cream, chocolate curls and enjoy.

  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp coffee
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk (200 ml cup, makes 2 cups)
  • 1 & 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, grounded
  • a pinch red chilli powder
  • chocolate curls / whipped cream, for garnishing


  1. Put cocoa powder and coffee in 2 serving mugs.
  2. In a saucepan, add milk and water and bring to boil. Remove from flame and pour the milk & water mixture in the mug. Stir well.
  3. Ground a small cinnamon stick roughly and sprinkle with a pinch of red chili powder. Mix well.
  4. Serve hot with chocolate curls or whipped cream.
To have a more creamier version, use full 1 cup milk of milk instead of milk & water.

This is going to the "For the Love of Chocolate" event hosted by Poornima of Tasty Treats.

I'm also sending the following recipies to the event.

1) Chocolate Fudge Cake (Cake with Chocolate Fudge Coating)

2) Black Forest Cake

3) Mousse au Chocolat (Chocolate Mousse)
