Mexican Chocolate Truffle

January 8, 2012

I am so lucky my friend’s husband’s family is from Guadalajara Mexico and they taught me how to make the foods that they grew up with:  Green enchiladas, tamales, tacos, salsas, guacamole.  Her mother-in-law even made a step by step tamale video:  How to Make Tamales if You are a Gringa.  A party with them is not complete without first inviting your entire family and all of their friends then making enough food to feed everyone for two dinners and a lunch in between.  And the secret to amazing Mexican food is the mix of chiles and how you prepare them.  For instance, guacamole:  toast chile arbols in hot oil, pour hot water over that, let it soak, zap it in a blender/food processor then add your onion, cilantro, and avocado salt and lime.  The earthy spicy chiles give it a flavor that is unreal.  This Mexican Chocolate Truffle uses this toast and zap method with Pasilla and Guajillo chiles.  It is earthy and spicy just the way it should be and it tastes even better with lots of great company.  Viva
