I just tried menu 15 - Mexican Style Chicken Stew. The chocolate beverage powder was far more flavorful than expected! I think they were going for what in Californian Spanish is called a Champurrado. It's spiced hot chocolate. Usually there's cinnamon and ground hot pepper added to spice it up. If you have ice, cayenne, and a spare coffee instant packet on hand, I highly recommend adding all that in, you'll get a delicious sweet and spicy treat with a strong caffeinated kick. It might be placebo given the commentary I've heard about strong g.i. coffee, but I just had my first MRE coffee packet by throwing it in, drank the whole thing down quickly, and boy does it kick hard for the small amount of coffee it is. You could probably also save half the red pepper flakes from the MRE intended for the chicken stew and add those in, if you don't mind the flakes in the drink.
