Colombia is a South American country bordering Panama, Venezuela, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru. It is the second most diverse country in the world. Colombia also has the largest bird, butterfly, and orchid species in addition to its 7,000 species of beetles.

 

Papas Chorreadas 

This dish, typical of the Andean area, is a popular side plate in Colombia. The simple-boiled red potatoes are covered with a rich cheesy sauce, tomatoes, and scallions. Chorreadas is derived from the Spanish verb chorrear, which means “to pour” or “to flow.”

Ingredients

1tbps olive oil

½ scallion, cut into juliette

1 garlic clove

200g chopped tomatoes

½ tsp cumin

Method
