Mexican Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread #ad

The holidays are finally here and our family is doing all the traditional holiday stuff---including baking yummy breads and treats! Although canned pumpkin is available all year 'round, it only seems appropriate to bake with it in the fall. I usually come up with at least one new pumpkin recipe each autumn season, and this year is no exception. You'll love the spicy zest I've added to my favorite pumpkin bread recipe.

Years ago when I was selling kitchen products as a home business, one of my favorite recipes to make for guests was Mexican Chocolate Cake. It's amazing how the inclusion of cinnamon brought out the deliciousness in that rich chocolate cake. "Mexican" chocolate usually features the addition of cinnamon and chili powder to give it a spicy zing. Since I tend to be a bit on the extravagant side, I figured five added spices couldn't hurt anything in this experiment!

I found many of my ingredients at Dollar General, which is just up the street from where I live. I love that smaller "corner store" feel to Dollar General and it's great that I can find many of the things I need without having to drive to or navigate the larger superstores. What's more, Dollar General offers coupons I can use right from my phone, and this season they're offering deals on many of my favorite baking items. Visit the Dollar General website to download your coupons, as well.

This recipe features both Nestlé® Toll House® Morsels and Libby's® 100% Pure Pumpkin---two items featured at a great price at Dollar General. I love that it's a simple "dump it in and mix it up" sort of recipe. These kinds are my favorites because they're ones I can have my kids whip up without my help when I'm short on time.

I served my Mexican Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread on Thanksgiving morning and the kids loved it! They knew something was different from my usual pumpkin bread recipe (besides the added chocolate chips) but no one, not even Daddy, guessed what it was. After everyone had agreed they liked it, I told them I'd added chili powder. They were surprised!

Here's the recipe. Let me know if you make it as I'd love to hear how it worked for your family!
