Corn Atole is a traditional Central American hot beverage. In Guatemala at 3:00 p.m., everyone goes out to get their "atole de elote" along with tamales or tostadas at a nearby food stand. If you like more cinnamon flavor, sprinkle with some ground cinnamon and savor this hot, comforting drink.

Ingredients

  • 3 cans (15.25 oz. each) sweet whole kernel corn (about 4 cups) undrained, divided; reserve 1/4 cup kernels for garnish
  • 2 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cans (12 fl. oz. each) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk

Wow! a must-try I remember atole from years ago and what a treat! It may look unusual but you must taste this, it is super.
