Hi! My name is Anakaren and I am a Chef in Kansas City and I was raised in KCK in the Argentine neighborhood. Given the amazing response to the movie Coco a few years ago more and more people are becoming interested in creating an altar for the Day of the Dead. It’s a beautiful tradition that has been around for many generations and it’s celebrated all over Latin America. One of the traditional drinks you will see being made during this celebration is Champurrado, a warm chocolate drink thickened with corn flour. It’s easy and made in minutes. Perfect for all Winter long too! Hope you enjoy the recipe and that you have a fun time creating your own altar to celebrate those you have loved. - Chef Anakaren Ibarra-Dumovich.
