Ancho's are one of the best chili's to pair with chocolate. They have a mildly sweet bite that complements the chocolate well. I didn't want to cover up the tabasco & habanero flavors already incorporated into the chili's and the ancho's added the perfect touch.
After multiple taste test's, I think the Habanero Slim Jim's were superior to the Tabasco flavored ones. The Habanero's are 10X spicier in general and for me, the spicier the better. None the less, the tabasco one's rocked.
Let me know what you think....
Step 1: Ingredients
1 Box Snack Size Tabasco Slim Jim's
1 REALLY FREAKIN' HOT Habanero Slim Jim
1 bar Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1 bag milk chocolate chips
3 Dried Ancho Chili Peppers
Baking sheet lined with wax paper
Step 2: Grind the Ancho Chili Peppers
Step 3: Make the Ancho Chocolate
In the meantime, chop chocolate bar into pieces. When water starts to simmer, place chocolate into pot and add 1 cup of milk chocolate chips. Use a heat proof spatula to stir the chocolate until it melts. Once chocolate is melted, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the ancho chili powder and stir to combine.
