Comments on Mexican chocolate pie

Mexican chocolate pie is salty and a bit spicy, but also sweet and smooth. What's not to love about that?

Gravatar van Janalee I am so happy this came across Facebook. I can't wait to try it. I love chocolates with a little bit of heat.

Gravatar van Terri Mauck what kind of chili? There are so many different kinds. The chili spice here we use to make chili beans
Ohmydish commented at 2015-11-07 07:58:49
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Terri, we looked it up for you; the chili we used contains mainly red peppers mixed with dried garlic, cumin seed and oregano. Be free to use any kind of chili you prefer and test it out :)

Gravatar van Sue What size springform pan is used?
Ohmydish commented at 2015-11-16 09:13:05
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hello Sue, we've used a 24 cm spring form (that's about 9,5 inch, so that would be a 9 inch spring form)

Gravatar van Susan The ingredient "dry cookies"..........is that like graham crackers? Thanks! Susan

Gravatar van Ohmydish We came across Graham crackers in a lot of recipes in the past few years. But we have no clue how it tastes. We don't have them here in Holland, but we presume it something like our "maria cookies" and therefor we described it as "dry cookies". Really love to try a Graham cracker haha! :)

Gravatar van Toni Oh my gosh! Would love to send you some Graham crackers, even other items we have here in USA that you can't find there. In trades of some items to me from Holland lol. When l was a child we had received a box of assorted cheeses, some were sweet. No return address, sent to our address of like 10 years, but not our name on package and was marked to keep it cooled. Found out from post office there was nothing we could do... So we ate it, lol!!! Was some amazing cheeses :)

Gravatar van Ohmydish That's awesome! American guests from the hotel I work did send us a "USA package" once. It was filled with lots of different peanut butter thingies. At this moment, a friend of ours is in the USA. She's bringing us some graham crackers haha! We're very curious :) And of course, one day, we will come to the USA and eat alllll the things, lol

Gravatar van Anjela Schieving For those of us in the United States, I found the Maria cookies at World Market.

Gravatar van Anjela Schieving The chocolate pudding filling tasted kind of flat to me. I added a teaspoon of Mexican vanilla, and that made all the difference. Also, it took far longer than 5 minutes for the pudding to thicken in the pan. It took several minutes before the mixture was even hot enough to simmer. Once it was hot enough, it did start to thicken well. Be patient. I found the Maria cookies at World Market. The cookies taste similar to animal crackers (non-frosted).

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Anjela, it has a rich chocolate flavour which I absolute love and doesn't seem flat to me personally. Maybe it'll take a few minutes more but it will definitely thicken indeed! :) Great you found some Maria cookies, but any other dry cookie kind will do! Friendly greetings, Véronique

Gravatar van Mary Ann what is a gram = to maybe a Tablespoon, gram of ??milk. can you translate to regular measure??
Ohmydish commented at 2015-11-20 08:11:17
Gravatar van Ohmydish We're not really sure what kind of measurements you would like to have, regular is different for everyone. That's why we have a list on our website, so you can look it up yourself: https://ohmydish.com/measurement-and-conversion-chart/ And of course, if you can't find what you need, let us know and we will help you :)

Gravatar van Deborah Gulliver I just love recipes. But don't forget us common folks. How can I make this recipe if things are posted in grams and ml's . I do not know how to convert.

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Deborah, you can check our conversion chart right here: . You can also use Google to convert metrics by searching for: "100 gram to oz"

Gravatar van Andrea I was so excited to try this for a cinquo de mayo party!! Got out my scale and measured precisely... followed directions to the tee, but used 2% milk and chocolate with chili already in it. After 12 hours of chilling, I unmolded the cake and it oozed all over the serving platter. I can’t imagine that 2% versus whole milk would cause the custard to be THAT watery. Has anyone else tried this recipe, or am I just horrible? I’m devastated. What waste of time and delicious ingredients....
Ohmydish commented at 2018-05-09 17:49:46
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hello Andrea, so sorry it didn't work out for you :( A lot of people made this recipe and it's a popular one on our site. Not runny at all, I never use 2% milk, but I think it's a lot more runny than whole milk? Did you cook the mixture before pouring it on top of the crust, until it has thickened?
Clint commented at 2019-08-10 18:25:42
Gravatar van Clint Wasn’t a fan. Not a well written recipe. There are ingredients left out of the instructions (cocoa powder). Not great flavor either, rather bland. I tried adding more dark chocolate and some cayenne as well.....still bland. Won’t save this recipe.
Ohmydish commented at 2019-08-10 21:25:14
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Clint. I'm sorry to hear it wasn't what you've expected. So because there's just one ingredient missing in the instructions, the whole recipe isn't well written? I've made this pie several times, other people have also made it many times, so it's great that all people in the world have different taste isn't it :)
Jane commented at 2022-09-20 20:20:41
Gravatar van Jane Can this be frozen for later?
Ohmydish commented at 2022-09-21 11:51:23
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Jane, I've never tried freezing this Mexican chocolate pie. But I'm certain it can be frozen since its mainly chocolate. Kind regards, Véronique
