There’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee to warm you up on a cold day. And there is no need to go to a coffee house to get an amazing cup of coffee. 

I love getting creative in the kitchen and playing around with different flavors and ingredients. And for this recipe, I combined two of my favorite hot drinks; Mexican hot chocolate and coffee. I added some ancho chile powder to give this coffee recipe some more flavor and depth. And to make it more festive and perfect for sharing with loved ones during the holidays I topped it with freshly made whipped cream. So good!!

I’m a huge fan of spicy chocolate and when you add coffee to the mix it’s a flavor combination made in heaven. The spicy pepper adds just the right amount of heat to give this coffee a spectacular and unique taste.

  1. I love all things spicy but I’m not sure how I would feel about this. It would probably take some getting used to but would taste beautiful otherwise.
    Thank you for sharing.
