Osorio’s Mexican Hot Chocolate

Osorio's Mexican Hot Chocolate Recipe Miguel Osorio, owner of Osorio el Mexicano and Taqueria Margarita, brings this recipe from Yosondua, Oaxaca, Mexico, where he grew up with his eight brothers and sisters. As a holiday treat, his widowed mother, Albertha, made hot chocolate and served it with pan de yema—bread made with extra eggs.
