Ajiaco - Columbian Potato Corn Chicken Soup

Wendy S.
Wonderful one dish meal from Colombia. I spent a year there teaching English and fell in love with this soup.


  • 3-4 kinds of potatoes - cut into chunks
  • 2 ears of corn - cut into 2"" sections
  • ½ chicken cut into parts
  • 2 medium onions
  • 4-6 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup large Spanish capers
  • ½ cup chopped parsley for garnish


  • Put the potatoes, corn, chicken, onions, and bouillon cubes in a pot of water - enough to cover the ingredients.
  • Cook for 1 hour, then remove the chicken to shred after it cools.
  • Mash the potatoes and onions when they are soft.
  • Makes a creamy soup ready to serve.
  • Put the shredded chicken, avocado, sour cream and capers in small separate bowls so people can add them in whatever amounts they wish.
