This rich yet simple chocolate cake gets a little kick from a touch of smoked Spanish paprika and espelette. Espelette is a smoky chile powder from France. If you don't have any of this in your cabinet, an equal amount of cayenne pepper will work just fine. This was created by the pastry chef at E2 Emeril's Eatery in Charlotte, N.C.
Everything you want in a queso dip: roasted fresh poblano chiles coated with a creamy cheese sauce. If your chiles don't have enough heat, you can always stir in a little cayenne or some spicy salsa to liven things up.
