Got ube halaya sitting in the fridge? If you're not making spanish bread or grilled cheese, consider a bowl of ube champorado. Making it is as easy as the classic chocolate version—instead of tablea, ube halaya and ube essence gives this champorado its flavor and color.

A Short History of Champorado

In the late 17th century, galleons brought chocolate to the Philippines along with Mexican champurrado: a hot chocolate beverage thickened with masa harina, the corn flour used to make tortillas.

And in the absence of masa, locals used malagkit (glutinous rice) in its stead to make Filipino champorado: a rich chocolate porridge to enjoy for breakfast or on rainy days.
