Chamorro Champulado
...chocolate rice pudding with milk and cocoa powder.


Champulado, pronounced cham-poo-law-do, is common in Latin countries, but is more well known as champurrado. Champurrado is slighlty different from what most Chamorros know of today as champulado; it's a masa-based thick, hot chocolate drink.

The champulado recipe in A Taste of Guam is what I remember eating while growing up on Guam. It is short or medium-grain rice, boiled till very soft then flavored with unsweetened cocoa powder, milk and sugar. The recipe in the book yields nearly 11 cups of pudding which may be eaten hot or cold. The recipe can also be easily halved for a smaller batch.
