Cinnamon-Chocolate-Chile Ice Cream

Chile was a popular accent to chocolate for the ancient Aztecs. If they could not get cinnamon, which came from the Far East, then they settled for chile. Here we are using both chile and cinnamon for a double treat.

Chile and chocolate were made for each other. They both excite our endorphins—producing an inner glow like affect. So try it and enjoy it!

Yield: 1 ½ quarts

¾ cup water

¼ cup crushed caribe chiles

2/3 cup sugar

2, 3 inch cinnamon sticks—our Pecos Valley Mexican canela or cinnamon is the BEST!

12 ounces bitter sweet chocolate

3 cups whipping cream

3 eggs

1. Simmer the water with the chiles for about 20 minutes or until the flesh slips on the chile skin. Pour into strainer and rub the chile with a spoon to get the most possible pulp. Place the chile pulp back in the saucepan and add 1/3 cup sugar and the cinnamon sticks.

2. Boil for one minute, then remove from heat and allow to set for five minutes. Discard cinnamon sticks and add the chocolate, which is broken into chunks. Stir until the chocolate melts. (If necessary, return to heat to melt the chocolate.)

3. Warm cream in another saucepan. Beat the eggs with the remaining sugar only to dissolve the sugar. Beat in a little cream and continue adding cream until all is added, then add the entire egg mixture, and whisk well to mix Return to heat and cook and stir until the mixture is warm. Add the chocolate mixture, whisking to combine well. Place in a heatproof bowl and refrigerate until chilled.

4. Stir or whisk to mix well and add to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s instructions.
