This recipe was amazing. The cocoa powder really gives it great depth.

I love this recipe because it's fast and requires very little prep work. It tasted way better than I expected. I think the key flavors are cayenne and cocoa powder. The video is easy to follow and I added ingredients to taste, following Chef John's example. Great recipe!
