Cocoa and chili might sound strange, but the combination is a traditional pairing in zesty Mexican cuisine. When shopping for cocoa power, check the ingredients list for only one ingredient, 100 percent cocoa, to avoid preservatives and get all the benefits.
Place the chili powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon, cumin, black pepper, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine. Store in an air-tight container in the pantry until ready to use. Sprinkle a pinch over the vegetable of your choice before grilling or add to any soup, bean, or quinoa dish.
