The menu: Pupusas, cortido slaw, black beans, roasted squash and potatoes, and ancho chile brownies.

Ancho Chile Brownies

16 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips

1 tablespoon ancho chili powder, or any other mild or medium chili powder made from a single variety of pepper. (Avoid chili powder blends with ingredients like cumin, oregano, and garlic powder)

½ teaspoon cinnamon

4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

One 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan, buttered and lined with buttered parchment or foil

Set a rack at the middle level of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter and chocolate in a double boiler. Add the chili powder and cinnamon.

Whisk the eggs together in a large bowl, then add the salt, sugars, and vanilla. Stir in the chocolate and butter mixture, then fold in the flour.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for about 45 minutes, until the top has formed a shiny crust and batter is moderately firm. Cool the brownies in the pan on a rack.
