Ajiaco is one of the emblematic dishes of Cuban cuisine, both for its flavor and for its cultural value. The wide variety of ingredients included represent the cultural diversity of the nation.

How to Make Ajiaco Cubano:

  1. Chop the tasajo into medium pieces and leave to soak for 12 hours. It would be good if you did this procedure the night before so it is ready when you want to prepare your ajiaco.
  2. After 12 hours, drain it well and cook it together with the chopped chicken and the 6 cups of water for 30 minutes over medium heat.
  3. Then add the pork and cook again for 30 minutes. It is important that you monitor the cooking and extract the fat and foam that accumulates on the surface of the pot.
  4. At the same time, prepare a stir-fry in the frying pan, to which you will add the lard, garlic, onion, bacon, and tomato sauce.
  5. Once the pork is cooked, add all the previously peeled and chopped beans, lemon juice, and corn cobs and let it thicken for 45 minutes.
  6. If you want it to thicken even more, take a few pieces of yam and malanga out of the pot, mash them and throw them back in.
