The word is from the Spanish champurrado, a traditional hot drink in Latin America.

In the Philippines, tsamporado / tsampurado / champorado / champurado is chocolate-flavored rice porridge.

Champorado is made by cooking malagkit (sticky or glutinous rice) with cocoa powder.

After placing the cooked mixture in a bowl, some milk is poured on top and oftentimes brown sugar is added. It is traditionally served with tuyo (dried fish) for breakfast, but is also a favorite snack.
