- 1 1/2 cups hot water
- 1/4 cup masa flour
- 3 cups milk
- 1 to 1 1/2 tablets (90 g each) NESTLÉ ABUELITA Chocolate
PLACE hot water and masa flour in large saucepan; mix until smooth. Add milk and Abuelita chocolate. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until boiling. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 3 minutes or until thickened to desired consistency. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon, if desired. Serve immediately.
