This is a simple way to switch up your go-to brownie recipe, influenced by the popular Mexican flavor combination of chocolate, cinnamon and chile pepper. Top each brownie with dulce de leche ice cream for a rich, satisfying dessert.
Prepare your favorite boxed or homemade brownies, adding 3/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon to the batter (for a batch that fits a 9-by-13-inch pan). Top each Mexican brownie with a scoop of dulce de leche ice cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
