Champorado is truly a favorite Pinoy breakfast.  When I was a child, waking up to Lola's champorado was the greatest thing for me.  I would be so happy to see that she prepared this warm chocolate soupy treat.  To make it even more special she would make milk swirls on top, to me back then that looked so delightful and fun.

It is best to serve this breakfast treat with dried or smoked fish.  The family's choice is tuyo, for me I prefer mine with dried squid.  If you think of it the cocoa, rice, milk and salty fish or squid should not work together.  But somehow the combination of the semi-bitter, sweet and salty works so wonderfully together.  Indeed a great way to start the day.
