    Mexican Hot Chocolate (pics included)

    Primal Fuel


    I've spoken a little about my Mexican heritage when I introduced the Mexi "Cauli" Rice recipe. In addition to rice, tortillas dripping in butter and tamales, I remember my grandmother's hot chocolate. Mexican hot chocolate is nothing like American hot chocolate, at least my grandmother's wasn't. In addition to being spiced up with chili powder, cinnamon and cloves, the consistency is thick, almost pudding-like. I recall my grandmother referring to it as "atole", which is a hot drink, thickened with masa harina or corn flour. Technically, "champurrado" is atole with chocolate but we always just called it "atole".

    So the chocolate goes straight into the water? That goes against everything I know about chocolate, so I want to confirm before I go dumping this stuff into a pot tonight.
