Atole season

Pat Hammond | Oct 20, 2008 10:46 AM

Atole is a hot beverage we start seeing in our Mexican community about this time of year. It's traditional at Day of the Dead celebrations. I bought a cup of the pineapple flavor today, although it's really not cold enough yet for this deeply warming beverage. The chocolate flavor is called champurrado, and I'll get that one next time, if only to have the pleasure of saying the word! It can be thick like porridge or more watery, depending on how much cornmeal is used. I like it pourable, sort of milk-shake consistency. If anyone makes it at home, please do share your method on the Home Cooking board!
