  1. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Place the chopped chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl; melt in the microwave oven at 40 percent power in 30-second intervals; stirring after each melting, until the chocolate is warm and smoothly melted, 1 to 3 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a separate large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter, brown sugar, 1 1/2 cup of white sugar, cocoa powder, and chipotle pepper until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, beating each egg into the mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla extract and water.
  4. Mix the melted chocolate into the butter mixture. Gently stir in the flour mixture until incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips. Cover bowl, and refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Place 1/2 cup sugar in a small bowl. Roll dough into small balls. Roll balls in sugar to coat. Place the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are set, 12 to 14 minutes. Allow to cool on the sheets for a minute or two before removing to racks to finish cooling.

These cookies are great. I did triple the chipotle and they turned out perfect. I rolled the cookies into balls slightly smaller than a golf ball which resulted in 3 to 3 1/2 inch cookies. I als...

I'm going to bake these this weekend when the Kids are Home. I'll add raisins (pasas) and pumpkin seeds (pepinos). This reads like a keeper!

I was VERY disappointed with how flat these cookies went but the flavor is great! I tripled the Chipotle peppers on my first batch but think that might be a little much for some people. Will onl...

Very good! On the whole parchment vs. foil thing, if you don't have parchment don't use anything at all. Foil does throw off baking. :)

Great flavour, but the recipe was off. I used a cup and a half of butter instead, and that still made them flatten out like a pancake. I had to add more flour later too. Also put the Chipotle (C...

Loved it! The aftertaste with the chili is tasty and not too strong. I just found it a little dry at the edge and managed to make 24 big cookie with the serving for only 12 but I can't really co...

This was an amazing cookie! I added another tbsp of chipotle and it was just enough spice. Took them to work and everyone raved about them. Will definitely be making them a lot.
