I don't know which I'd like less.  THAT hot chocolate or the hot chocolate served by these Uncanny Valley creepos:

I seriously hope it's not flavored with Tabasco sauce.  But yeah - Mexicans have been doing this forever.  IIRC, cacao and chilis were the original drink.  Unsweetened.

Chocolate and chilies go well together, but I'm really skeptical about Tabasco chocolate.  That's a lot of vinegar; seems like it would be kind of gross.

Tabasco is what you put on your eggs when you've run out of EVERY other kind of hot sauce and condiment in the house.

I prefer a chunky salsa for eggs, but Tabasco has its place.  It has more depth of flavor than most mass market sauces, and it's so thin that it's great for soups, sauces, and such.

I'm not sure how I feel about it in chocolate.  I'd try it, but I agree that the vinegar component could be problematic.  On the other hand, if they flavored it some of the fermented pepper mash before it's blended with vinegar to make the sauce, that might be pretty tasty.

That would be Sriracha.

Sriracha has garlic and sugar in it, and while the sugar obviously wouldn't be a problem in chocolate, the garlic might.  Sriracha also doesn't have as much of a fermented taste as Tabasco does, which could be a result of a shorter aging period (if that age it at all), the actual aging process, or even the types of peppers used.

Rincewind53: Mexicans did it first.


you mean aztecs did it long before the Spaniards ever got in a boat?
"They called themselves Mexica"

SCIENCE DAMMIT
Learned something new today.

Aztec is gringo for Mexica.

So you are right.

Oh dear FSM - I went back and looked, and it's flavored with Tabasco sauce.  No way.  The vinegar and salt... Ew.

My sister loves Mexican hot chocolate.  She first got it in Mexico, then later found a place in San Antonio that would ship to her.  I would wager that by now, there's a place where she can get it in Little Rock, where she and my BIL live.

I didn't care for the stuff when I was a teenager, but I think I would probably like it now.  When I was younger, I was all about the sugar.  I don't think that's uncommon.

MEGA BLECH!
I imagine, though, that this thread will yield links to good tasting products, and recipes for others.

I'm sure if you wanted to do a google search, you'd be able to find about a thousand recipes for it.

I can't imagine living anywhere that I couldn't get Ibarra at the grocery store; that would be weird.

Or Abuelita.  Even here in the middle of nowhere, every grocery has either Abuelita or Ibarra.

Yeah, my closest grocery has both.  I think Ibarra's better, but that might just be because that's what I grew up with.

I've made seven batches of my spiced chocolate for Christmas gifts so far this month.  1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted. 1 habanero pepper, seeded and diced.  Stir pepper into chocolate and refrigerate/freeze until hard.  Slice and serve to your unsuspecting friends, family and co-workers.  It has about a five second fuse and will open up your sinuses very nicely.  Good stuff and a favorite in the Pooper household.

 Sounds excellent!  I might try that.  A bit of cinnamon and allspice might go good with that too.  Maybe Scotch Bonnets in place of habeneros?

[off to experiment!  My family have you to blame!  Ha ha. ]
