Aromatic ingredients 1
Undoubtedly, what makes the champurrado so flavorful and aromatic are the spices. For 4 cups you'll need: 6 cloves, 2 anise stars and 2 cinnamon sticks. In addition, you'll need piloncillo (panela or papelón) to sweeten. This blend gives it its flavor and characteristic aroma.
Corn flour 2
