    1. Place the milk and chocolate in a small saucepan over medium low heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted. Do not boil.
    2. Pour chocolate mixture into a blender and blend until foamy.
    3. Pour into a cup, break the chilli into two or three pieces (discarding seeds) and drop into cup. Drink immediately. Eat the chili only if you can handle it!


    For most authentic results, use Mexican chocolate, such as Abuelita®. It is a unique chocolate that contains sugar and cinnamon, and it is integral to the recipe.
