Butifarras Soledeñas (sausages of Soledad, Atlántico)
Barranquilla butifarras

Butifarra Soledeña (sausage of Soledad, Atlántico) is a type of botifarra that has developed into a regional specialty in Colombian cuisine.[1] They are made from ground beef and pork with spices (especially salt and pepper). The meat is cut into pieces and boiled. The mixture is encased in intestine and tied off with string into sections. The lengths are boiled. Butifarras Soledeñas are hawked in the street by vendors calling out "buti, buti, buti" while drumming on the metal containers from which they are sold.[1] Butifarras Soledeñas are often offered with fresh squeezed lime juice.

The South American cuisine version of botifarra is shorter and almost round. It is a speciality in Colombia in the town of Soledad and also in Barranquilla. Butifarra is a very popular dish eaten with bollo of yuca and lime juice.[2] They are a celebrated tradition of the area.[1] They can be eaten with the casing removed.[1]

The name comes from the words embutido (Spanish for cured sausages and meaning pressed) and farra (meaning spree or party).[1]
