what is the difference between champurrado and atole? - street vendor confusion

tastycakes | Dec 9, 2009 08:54 AM

i get "champurrado" from a lady who walks the street in front of my house selling it plus these amazing green chile tamales. but when i try to find a recipe, it has too much chocolate and is thick and gritty from masa harina. what she sells is pale beige, lightly cinnamony and cocoa-y, and thick and smooth. is this atole or champurrado?
