Shouldn't this be in the humour section? This is a joke, right?
1/4 teaspoon "plus additional to taste" chili powder!!!!!!!!!!!????? If you eat that you're most certainly going to have "freedom from tranquility"!!

The part that made me laugh is "almost to a boil". If it isn't actually boiling how do you know it is about to?

I boiled a kettle and poured hot water over 1 teaspoon each of demerera sugar (natural brown) and quality cocoa powder, 1/3 teaspoon of cinnamon and ancho chilli powder. Ancho chilli powder is 1/2 the heat of a typical chilli powder and has more flavour. Topped w coffee cream. Chilli should be boiled or cooked to release the flavour but I'm lazy. Mmmm, i'll be doing that again.

"Chilli" powder is dried from a mix of chillies including green chillies: sorrano and jalopeno and reds and includes some basil and cumin (preferably Mexican basil). Cayenne powder is just the chillies. Paprika is dried and ground sweet red pepper that is usually grown in a vineyard. The heat in a pepper is greater in the seeds and ribs of the pepper.

I am experimenting with the Poblano peper (i finally got some seed) which is the pepper Mexicans love best for flavour and "mild" heat and is dried into "ancho" powder. I finally found some powder (that wasn't on a shelf 5 years and tasteless) and they have dried peppers : similiar in texture to sun dried tomatoes.

Anybody want seedlings if I have success?

I'm 1/2 Ukrainian. Not a spice person. Even chilli goes without chilli powder in our home hahahahahah!! The craziest I get with strong flavours is cabbage, onions, garlic and on my wildest days I will crack some pepper. I would not be able to drink a chilli hot chocolate. I can't even tolerate chai tea. Explosion!

Love chili plus chocolate, but I use powdered peppers only, not a fan of cumin in chocolate.
I looooove spicy food. The chili peppers I grow and use are called Chile de Arbol, hot enough for almost anything you'd want them for.
Most of what North America calls 'hot' and 'spicy' is so NOT. A shame, really, that our collective palate is so boring that we need to load everything with fat, salt and sugar.

Ahem. I'm not boring. Well maybe a little. But when it comes to food I like singular flavours and mild. Us boring people created perogies. You can thank me later.

(I just being cheeky. A bit)
