Sancocho (from the Spanish verb sancochar, "to parboil") is a traditional soup (often considered a stew) in several Latin American cuisines derived from the Spanish dish known as cocido. It usually consists of large pieces of meat, tubers and vegetables served in a broth.
In Colombia, Sancocho is made with many kinds of meat (most commonly chicken, hen and fish) with large pieces of plantain, potato, cassava and corn depending on the region. Some top it off with fresh coriander, onion and squeezed lime. It is also served with a side of sliced avocado and a plate of white rice, which is usually dipped in with each spoonful of soup.
