Champurrado at Cancun Juice - Santa Ana
So what is a champurrado, you ask? If you looked it up on Wikipedia, it’s a “traditional corn- or masa-based beverage of Mesoamerican origin”.
Not to be reductive, but to me, champurrado is what happens when a mug of hot cocoa gets it on with a warm bowl of oatmeal.
It’s a meal that you drink (or is it a drink that’s also a meal?) and it's the only thing you need in the morning.
Cancun Juice’s rendition is pretty wonderful--the real breakfast of champions, which actually has the word "champ" already in it.
