Fricasé de Cerdo

Fricasé is a traditional soup in Bolivian cuisine prepared with pork, pork ribs or chicken, hominy, chuño (a freeze-dried potato product) or potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and spices.[1][2][3] It is sometimes consumed as a hangover food, as having a theoretical potential for easing or alleviating symptoms associated with the hangover.[2][4]

Fricasé is a common soup in Bolivia, and is often sold and consumed in the morning.[1] It is a spicy soup that is typically prepared using large chunks of meat, and chuno potatoes are typically used in the Altiplano region of Bolivia.[1] The aji pepper is sometimes used as an ingredient,[3] and bread crumbs are sometimes used to thicken the soup.[5]
