I made this for my family and they loved it. I tastes very authentic to that which I had in Colombia, but I'm sure easier to prepare. It went together in a snap and the flavors are rich and satisfying.

I recently made this for my husband who is originally from Bogota, Colombia. He loved it! This soup makes a delicious winter meal. Thanks for a great recipe.

This wasn't that big of a deal to make, and it was a very tasty homey dish. I liked that it was one pot in a way and a complete meal that tasted good even the next day.
