What's in the Fridge...Quick Champorado

What to do with some leftover suman...how about a quick Champorado. Quick and easy. Pour around two cups of milk (low fat works well) into a pot, then add three to four tablespoons of Hershey Cocoa and bring to a boil.  Simply unwrap and mash up the suman (glutinous sticky rice rolls) in the pot and allow to simmer.


Since the Suman is already sweet, you don't need need to add sugar, but if you are using regular sticky rice, adding some sugar to taste is a good idea. Using Suman is a cheat, but it works. This simple dish can be traced back to Spanish and Mexican influences as a result of the Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade when chocolate was introduced to the Philippines, and it's been chocolate love ever since.




Add some more milk before serving, a little sugar if you want it sweeter, and it's done.


This simple chocolate based rice porridge is fast and easy to prepare for a tasty and filling snack. Great for a quick chocolate fix. Another fridge raid completed.

  2. This is interesting. Is it a dessert since it's sweet? Looks yummy.

    1. Hi Jen, it's essentially a dessert or snack, as some people eat this with vanilla ice cream. Some people eat this with dried salted fish for breakfast. Great to hear from you Jen, and thanks for stopping by!
