    Champurrado

    This beverage, specifically a type of atole, is traditionally prepared with masa harina (flour for making corn tortilla dough) to thicken it. For variations, include other flavorings and spices: a tablespoon of grated orange zest; a teaspoon of crushed aniseed or almond extract; or a pinch of grated nutmeg or 2 to 3 whole cloves.


    Ingredients
    1/4
    cup
    masa harina or cornstarch
    2
    ounces
    mexican chocolate, grated
    1/4
    cup
    light brown or granulated sugar
    2
    cinnamon sticks (brake in half, add extra for garnish)
    1
    teaspoon
    vanilla extract
    1
    cup
    whole milk
    Directions
    In medium saucepan, combine masa and one cup cold water. Stir over medium heat. Add chocolate, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, and stir constantly until mixture has thickened. Add vanilla.
    Increase heat to high and slowly pour in milk. Stir until mixture has thickened again and easily coats back of spoon, 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat and remove cinnamon sticks.
    Using molinillo, whisk, or hand beater, whisk briskly to form frothy head. Serve hot, with cinnamon stick garnish if desired.
