MEXICAN CHOCOLATE: As early as 500 BC, the Mayans were drinking chocolate made from ground-up cocoa seeds mixed with water, cornmeal, and chili peppers (as well as other ingredients)—a much different version from the hot chocolate we know today. They would mix the drink by pouring it back and forth from a cup to a pot until a thick foam developed, and then enjoy the beverage cold.
Although the chocolate drink was available to all classes of people, the wealthy would drink it from large vessels with spouts, which later would be buried along with them.
Today, Mexican Hot Chocolate is different from “regular” hot chocolate in that it has a more pronounced chocolate taste, is less sweet, and has unique spices like cinnamon and chili powder and/or cayenne pepper to give it a slight kick. Don’t worry, you’re not going to have to down a glass of water after taking a drink -- The spice just deliciously lingers on your tongue after you’ve had a sip or two.
