"After trying Mexican hot chocolate it became almost impossible to drink any other kind. I use Nestle's Abuelita chocolate which has the perfect amount of sweetness and cocoa. This recipe is perfect for a cold night or rainy day. Salud!"


Total Servings: 4


  • 11/2 Tablets Mexican chocolate (90 grams) (preferred brand Abuelita or Ibarra)
  • 8 cups milk (I use nonfat but you can use any kind you like)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspooon vanilla extract


  1. Combine milk, cinnamon stick, vanilla, and chocolate in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until hot and chocolate is melted (make sure it doesn't boil!).
  2. Remove from heat. Beat with wire whisk until slightly frothy. Pour into mugs; serve immediately.
