Vanilla and Chocolate Chipotle Brownies

These chipotle chocolate brownies have an authentic Mexican flavor and the chipotle gives the chocolate a real kick and boosts its flavor. This might at first sound like a strange combination but chocolate and chilies work so nicely together, in both sweet and savory recipes. Brownies might not be a Mexican creation but there is no mistaking the combination of flavors in this Mexican dessert recipe, and you will love the south of the border taste here.

A lot of Mexican desserts share common ingredients, such as chocolate, vanilla, nutmeg or cinnamon, but these ingredients are combined with others and added in different quantities, meaning that no two Mexican dessert recipes are alike. If your family enjoys eating brownies, why not make this tasty Mexican variation? You will love the way the chipotle enhances the chocolate flavor. This recipe serves 8 people and you can serve the brownies with some vanilla ice cream if you like, or even whipped cream.

Have you ever made brownies before? There is nothing to worry about if not, because they are very easy. The ingredients are combined and then the brownies batter goes into a baking dish and the brownies are baked in the oven until done. You then need to let them cool down a bit and sprinkle powdered sugar over the top. The rich, delicious flavor will really impress you and this recipe is suitable for a dinner party. Perhaps you might like to add some fresh strawberries or raspberries to the plate for an elegant garnish.

Although these are especially nice served after a Mexican entrée you can serve them after any kind of main dish. Alternatively they are good as a late afternoon snack – something to have with your coffee and satisfy your sweet tooth, or you might like to make a batch as a gift. These brownies are not like any brownies you have had before though, even if you have had vanilla and chocolate brownies. The chipotle chilies give them an incredible flavor and that kick is so amazing with the chocolate, guaranteeing a rich, hearty flavor which everyone should enjoy.
