A typical Nicaraguan baho

Vaho (or Baho) is a mix of meat, green plantains and yuca cooked in banana leaves. It is a traditional Nicaraguan dish originated from the mix of cultures between the indigenous, mestizos and afro-Nicaraguans of the country.

In Nicaragua and some other Spanish dialects "vajo" is pronounced as "bajo". There is some controversy as to whether the correct spelling is "vajo" or "bajo". Its also served with a cabbage and tomato salad made with vinegar and lemon/lime juice (curtido). The salad tops the meat, yuca and plantains. It is a traditional Sunday dish.
