Champorado is a Filipino chocolate rice porridge that is traditionally served for breakfast. Chocolate for breakfast may sound like a dream, but there’s a caveat. It’s typically served with tuyo (dried salted fish). Champorado may perhaps be the original chocolate cereal as it is quite literally a “chocolate cereal.” It can be likened to a warm bowl of oatmeal crossed with a chocolate bar. While chocolate is the main ingredient of this dish, it’s not very sweet. Rather, this porridge highlights the complexities of dark chocolate. Much of the sweetness and creaminess comes from the milk drizzled on top.
