Yesterday, we posted a request for information about the Mexican song "Bate bate chocolate". Today, we found a slightly different version that may refer to a recipe. Here it is:
Bate bate chocolate
Bate bate chocolate,
con arroz y con tomate
Uno, dos, tres, CHO!,
uno, dos, tres, CO!
Uno, dos, tres, LA!,
uno, dos, tres, TE!
Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!*
Beat, beat the chocolate,
with rice and with tomato
One, two, three, "Cho"
One, two, three, "co"
One, two, three, "la"
One, two, three, "te"!
Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! *
*In some alternate versions, the last line can repeat the first two lines: "Bate bate chocolate, con arroz y con tomate".
I’ve also seen references to another recipe which might be the subject of this song, one that includes the ingredients that the song lists, chocolate, rice and tomatoes. Do you know this dish? We’d love to hear about it and learn how to make it.
Thanks in advance for any info!
