Sweet and Spiceeeeeeeeeee

spicy hot chocolate
Mexican hot chocolate is a favorite around here especially when the weather turns cold. We like to buy Abuelita hot chocolate and make it with milk. Although, I tried making it with vanilla soy milk recently and it was even better!

This post was written for you, Grace since I know you like hot chocolate and also since you're my one woman audience on this blog.  AND, if you like spicy, try this. . .

Boil 2 cups of water with a chile pepper that has been cut in half and the stem cut off too. Let it boil until it reduces to about 1 cup. Add some of this water to your finished hot chocolate to give it a spice kick. I think you'll really like it!



  1. Oh my gosh, I am going out tomorrow to buy the stuff for this. Not joking! I am ALL OVER IT.

    Wait, where can I get the Abuelita?

  2. Hi ladies!

    Did you know you can get Abuelita in powdered form? I've seen it in a few local grocery stores next to the other hot chocolate. I don't know how it compares Abuelita in block form, but I think it's delicious! Way better than Swiss Miss.
