I used the pepper trying to be authentic. It didn't have enough mocha flavor for my taste. It might be better without it. I am trying a different recipe for my party.
Mexican Chocolate Soufflés
You can omit the small amount of coffee liqueur without drastically changing the flavor. Contemporary Mexican chefs often add ground red pepper to their chocolate desserts; leave it out if you want a more traditional taste.
