1Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt chocolate as directed on package. Set aside. Mix flour, cinnamon, ginger, ground New Mexico chile, baking powder and salt in medium bowl.
2Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Add melted chocolate; beat until well blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well blended. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons (medium cookie scoop) onto parchment-lined cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
3Bake about 10 minutes or just until cookies are set and slightly cracked on top. Use parchment paper to transfer cookies to wire. Cool completely.
