Lechona and/or also known as lechon asado is a popular Colombian dish.

It is similar in style to many preparations made in other South American countries. It consists of a roast pig stuffed, yellow peas, green onion, yellow rice, and spices cooked in an outdoor, brick oven for about ten hours.

It is traditional to the Tolima Department in central Colombia. It is usually accompanied by arepas (a corn-made bread).
