    Colombian Ajiaco

    Earlene Manrique from MIRAMAR, FL

    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.

    easy and good

    Carine Nadel from LAGUNA HILLS, CA

    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.
