Champorado

During the galleon trade between Mexico and Philippines some Mexican traders stayed in the Philippines and brought with them their Champurrado a warm thick chocolate drink made with corn flour and milk or water.   Filipinos eventually changed the recipe and turned it into champorado a chocolate rice porridge. 

In our country Champorado is usually served for breakfast and merienda. Some recipes use left over rice.  It’s one way of turning cold rice into something yummy.

Another way to make champorado is  with  glutinous rice (Galapong).  Glutinous rice is thicker and more flavorful. Many times champorado is eaten with “tuyo” salted dried fish.  The salty fish paired with the sweet chocolate porridge makes for a lovely contrast.

Here’s my version of Champorado.  You gonna love this!  Pair it with fried dried fish,  perfect!
