Recipe of The Month: Chocolate Nuevo Mexicano

This showed up today in the little pamphlet that came with the bill from electric utility P.N.M., from their employee-written book "Cocinas de New Mexico" [1979].
Cooking time 15 minutes; makes 12 servings.

½ cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour
¼ cup cocoa
1½ cups water
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
¾ tsp cloves
6 cups milk
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS {slightly modified by me}

1) Combine sugar, flour, cocoa, water, and spices in a large saucepan.

2) Cook mixture at medium-high for approximately four minutes, stirring occasionally.

3) Add milk to mixture and scald – but do not boil.

4) Remove saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla.

5) Pour into mugs with handles.

Chocolate Nuevo Mexicano is traditionally served with biscochitos, the official cookie of the State of New Mexico.
