Mexican Chocolate

Chocolate and Mole From Oaxaca

Hot chocolate drink holds a beloved place in the culinary culture of Oaxaca. In homes and cafes, it is prepared in clay jugs. The dark chocolate tablet is melted in hot milk or water, and whipped with a ringed, wooden Molinillo until it is foamy and fragrant. Our packages from the Oaxacan brands Mayordomo and La Soledad contain flat bars or cylinders of chocolate blended with cacao, sugar, ground almonds, cinnamon, and sometimes with vanilla and/or coffee. Note our different package sizes and flavor blends. Enjoy Oaxacan chocolate's distinct, rich flavor, hot or cold. Yum!

The rich, Mexican chocolate we carry comes from the two most acclaimed brands in Oaxaca — Mayordomo and La Soledad. The manufacturers start with a base of dark, bitter chocolate made from roasted cacao beans grown in southern Mexico. Then they add varying amounts of sugar, cinnamon, pulverized almonds, sometimes vanilla, coffee and chili powder to produce hard tablets in variety of blends and flavors. On this page we offer a choice of package sizes and flavor blends, including low-sugar versions. Melt a chocolate tablet in hot milk or hot water to make a dark, rich chocolate drink — hot cocoa in the winter, or chill it cold for a summer treat. Here is a recipe for making hot Mexican cocoa from the online Mexican Food Journal.

We also sell Mexican mole! Oaxaca is known as the "land of the seven moles," a thick sauce made from as many as 30 ingredients, including chocolate. We carry Mayordomo mole negro in sealed, glass jars. Dilute with water or chicken broth to make a spicy, chocolatey sauce perfect for serving over chicken, turkey and pork dishes.

All our Mexican chocolate products are stamped with sell-by dates attached at the factory in Oaxaca.
