Pique macho (/ˈpikɛ ˈmɑːtʃo/) is a typical Bolivian food. It is a heaped plate consisting of bite-sized pieces of beef, sausage (hot dog type), and french fry-cut potatoes. Added to this mixture are onions, locoto, boiled egg, mustard, mayonnaise, and ketchup.
Smaller portions are simply called pique; pique macho is a huge portion, and traditionally spicy hot because of the pimenton. Urban legend suggests that this is because you are macho if you can finish one by yourself.
The "Pique Macho" or "Pique a lo Macho" was created by Mr. Honorato Quinones and his wife Evangelina Gomez Quinones, owners of "Restaurante Miraflores" in Cochabamba, Bolivian.
