    Champurrado is a chocolate-based drink with corn flour added to thicken it. I remember having champurrado on cold winter mornings in my grandmother’s cozy cocina. Grandma always seemed to know what little kids need on any given day, that’s what makes grandmas so special. She made this thick chocolaty drink to help me warm up in the morning. If the champurrado was too hot I remember her pouring it back and forth between two cups to cool it off.
