  • 2 sticks 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 ounce 70% chocolate chopped, 60-70% works
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter on low heat. Remove from heat and add the sugar and chopped chocolate.
  • Add eggs and vanilla. Fold in and mix with a wooden spoon.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, chili powder, baking powder and a pinch salt.
  • Add the flour mixture to the sauce pan and fold in until combined. I like to add the flour in two parts, half and half.
  • Stir until semi-smooth and pour into a 9×9 pan.
  • Bake for 20 minutes… do NOT over bake! That is my biggest advice! The center should still be a little gooey when you take it out. Enjoy these delicioso Mexican chocolate brownies!!
