    1 chili pepper, cut in half,seeds removed
    5 cups light cream or whole milk or nonfat milk
    1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
    1-2 cinnamon stick
    8 ounces bittersweet chocolate or 3 pieces mexican chocolate, cut into 2 inch pieces
    2 tablespoons sugar or honey, to taste
    1 tablespoon almonds or hazelnuts, ground extra fine

    1. Add chili pepper to 2 cups boiling water.
    2. Cook until liquid is reduced to 1 cup.
    3. Remove chili pepper; strain for stray seeds, and set aside.
    4. In a medium-size saucepan, combine cream or milk, vanilla bean and cinnamon stick.
    5. Heat over medium flame until bubbles appear around the edge.
    6. Reduce heat to low.
    7. Add chocolate and sugar or honey.
    8. Whisk occasionally until chocolate is melted and sugar dissolves.
    9. Turn off heat.
    10. Remove vanilla bean and cinnamon stick, stir in ground almonds or hazelnuts.
    11. Carefully add the chili pepper infusion, a little at a time, making sure the flavour isn’t too strong.
    12. If chocolate is too thick, thin with a little more milk.

    I have no idea how Boston got this recipe. I am very impressed. I just remember that there was hot pepper in with the chocolate. It sounds very strange, but it is like Mexican mole, which is a sauce with chocolate, peanut butter, and hot peppers which is to be served over chicken and rice.

    Boston — could you site your source? I’d like to see what they have.
    If you liked Chocolate, you’re sure to like “Like Water for Chocolate”. It’s a great movie and the novel has the recipes.
