Now I know it might sound like a controversial combination, but trust me chilli and chocolate is just like cheese and crackers – a match made in heaven.
It took a while to get used to the idea of combining two completely opposite ingredients, but once I got the right chilli flavour mixed with the chocolate, it was a taste sensation that gave off intense, unique notes and an unforgettable flavour that made me want more and more!

Did you know, the Aztecs were indulging in chocolate and chilli way back in the days, so we are not the first to think of this amazing fusion of flavours. Archaeologists have discovered vessels that contain both cacao pods and chilli mixed together to create a drink called Xocolatl. This was a special drink that was usually served at important ceremonies. Guess we are not as clever as we thought we were; the Aztecs beat us to it, but still it’s a chilli-chocolate fusion that you must try.
