Moody: Mexican Chocolate Brownies

Moody Up: Mexican Chocolate Brownies 

Cinco De Mayo, a day that everyone takes as an extra reason to fiesta like there is no mañana. Everyone gets in on the extra guac from high school Spanish classes to groups of girlfriends as well as people looking to hit a few extra margaritas after a long day of work. Fiesta right? Right.

Cinco De Mayo, immortalizing the 1862 Mexican victory against the French in the Franco-Mexican War definitely is a day to relish all of our favorite Mexican dishes.

If you're hosting your own Cinco De Mayo fiesta at home or attending a poquito party elsewhere, making a batch of Mexican Chocolate brownies is an easy sweet-n-spicey dessert to whip up.

Mind you, these brownies are moody {hence the way I edited the photos, a little moodier} as they have a hot tamale kick to them. However, they are also SUPER easy to make.
