Puchero Canario

Puchero Canario is a very popular meal in Canary Islands. It is a meat and vegetable stew which is simple to make in one pot. Puchero, as with most Spanish stews is in itself a whole menu. Above all, this is the case when its stock is also used to prepare a soup, which can be accompanied by a good escaldón de gofio (hand-rolled balls of toasted maize/corn flour).
The recipes may vary depending on the ingredients available to the chef or housewife at the time
