ChocolateBet: February 8, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:
1 teaspoon
McCormick (Gourmet Collection - Blends)
Cocoa Chile Blend
(used on/with some roasted eggplant and tomato)
Very Good
Wt.: ~ .3 oz. (8.5 g.)/2 oz. (56 grams) in total jar
Calories: ~ 30 calories (estimate) in 1 teaspoon (~335 cals. in eggplant dish)
Cost: $4.99 for entire 2 oz. jar
Purchased from: Safeway, in Palo Alto, CA

Today is day #3 of chocolate & vegetable week on the blog.

For dinner I made some roasted eggplant and one tomato (one each) with a dash of lemon juice - and about a teaspoon of this cocoa chile seasoning. (My apologies for the low-res scanned image of the jar (above right).) This spice blend is a mix of cocoa powder, chipotle pepper, sugar, and paprika. It was quite tasty.
