It's a cocoa chile blend. I have no idea what to do with that, any suggestions?

I'd add some of that to chili, bbq sauce for ribs or pulled pork, or to spaghetti sauce. The most traditional use, of course, would be for a Mexican style mole sauce - good with chicken and some fresh tortillas. Don't forget tres leche cake for dessert!

Salt and pepper chicken then season it with the powder. Pan roast it. You can also sprinkle it on vanilla ice cream. It goes with creamy orange and/or cinnamon flavored desserts.

Thanks but I guess I should have mentioned I don't eat meat. I don't even like veg. chili. Maybe I should just give it away.

I would have suggested the chili too, but I'd also say to try sprinkling some on some SUPER FRESH / RIPE strawberries, or even some mango slices.

Not knowing how bitter it is, you may or may not need to add a little bit of sugar, or confectioners sugar (I likely would not). and as weird as it sounds, spicy spices like peppers and chilies are really good on fresh fruits and melons.

Give it a try. Start with a little, and keep going right up until it overpowers, then back down by a "smidge". I bet it's awesome!

Why not make some kind of grilled vegetable chipotle quasi-Mexican enchiladas or quesadillas?

Sounds like a delicious seasoning--where did you get it?

I would love to try it in chili or chicken quesadillas. I love mole, but never tried to make it.

That blend is a take off of the Oaxacan mole negro sauce.

Two of the primary ingredients are chilies and coco.

Many uses in recipes from Central Mexico and Central America.

You could use it to make a sauce to pour over veggies, rice, beans, tofu etc.... A nice vegetarian stir fry with that spice as a sauce base would be nice.
