Cocoa Chili Powder:

2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Pinch salt


4 flour tortillas (8-inch in diameter)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

4 ounces white chocolate, broken into 1-inch squares

4 ounces dark chocolate, broken into 1-inch squares

3 teaspoons cocoa chili powder

4 scoops vanilla ice cream, for service

2 tablespoons dark chocolate sauce, for garnish


  1. For Cocoa Chili Powder:
  2. Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and combine well. Set aside.
  3. For Quesadillas:
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet or a cast iron griddle over medium-high heat. Spread 1 side of each tortilla with butter. Lay 2 tortillas in the pan, buttered side down, and top each with half of the chocolate in a random order of varieties. Sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon cocoa chili powder and cover with the remaining tortillas, buttered side up. Let cook until the chocolate starts to melt, about for 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully flip over and cook the other side until evenly browned, an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat to a cutting board, let rest for 3 to 4 minutes, then cut each into 4 quarters. To plate, put 1 scoop of ice cream into each serving dish, add 2 pieces of quesadilla and drizzle with the dark chocolate sauce. Dust each dish evenly with remaining teaspoon of the cocoa chili powder. Serve immediately.
