I LOVED this! I've been looking for a recipe like this for weeks (in honor of my favorite Mexican Restaurant within 300 miles: Junior Salsa's in Arbor Vitae, WI). This is the best recipe I've found so far. I scaled it to 2 servings (albeit for one person: me). I didn't have any sweet peppers on hand, so I skipped it. I imagine it would add another dimension of flavor to this already delightfully unique hot chocolate; I will definitely make this again using the red pepper. This time, however, I added about a 1/2 t. of vanilla extract (for 2 servings, remember) and, for extra creaminess (how I prefer my hot chocolate), I melted 4 large marshmallows as I heated the mixture. (I also used 3 parts milk / 1 part light cream instead of just milk). Sorry for the rate-with-mods, but YUM! By the way, I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder (again, with EXCELLENT results); don't know if that makes a difference to others who are considering this recipe.
