Making a New Mexican version of a killer beer style. How's it New Mexican? I'm using Hatch chiles instead of seranno peppers. Also, because I'm a gringa, am halving the pepper content--I can't take the heat.

Made gluten-free (or gluten-removed) for the Wife.

From the original recipe: "My inspiration for this idea is a Mexican hot chocolate. Sweet chocolate and cinnamon taste with a hint of spiciness from the cayenne. I used bakers chocolate melted in a cup of water in this batch because the first one tasted a bit chalky when i used cocoa powder. i also used Zimbabwe Bird peppers not Seranno but they are close on the Scoville scale."
