Looking for a delicious sweet heat? This recipe for Red Chile Chocolate Chip Cookies will hit the spot. We've taken a iconic chocolate chip cookie and put a New Mexican twist on it. Red chile and dark chocolate come together to make a brilliantly balanced combination. This fresh take on a classic treat will have you wondering why you've never made them like this before.

LET'S GET COOKING

Before you start mashing ingredients together to make your red chile chocolate chip cookies, preheat your oven to 350°F.

Toss in the softened butter and sugars in a medium bowl and mix until smooth. Next, beat in eggs and vanilla followed by the baking soda and salt. Slowly mix in flour until the batter is smooth and sticks together.

Mix in the red chile and give it a taste. For a stronger batch, add in more chile powder or use a Bueno's medium red chile powder.

Finally, add in the dark chocolate chips and mix well.

Get a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper. Using a spoon, measuring cup, cookie scoop or whatever, roll 3 tbs of dough into balls and place them on the cookie sheet. Remember to leave some room between the balls; when baking, they'll spread out.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until they are just turning brown.

Remove from oven and let them sit on the baking pan for 2 minutes. Place on a cooling rack, let cool and enjoy!
