Carrero stew

The stew carrero is another of our dishes. Perhaps not as famous as other national renowned, but complete, rich and nutritious.

Guiso carrero

Why is the carrero stew called “Carrero”? The history of this national dish goes back to the  Cologne . When travelers, merchants, settlers and their custodian troops, they moved into the interior of the country in carts. Caravans of various carts and day trips. Where food was based on stews of what was there, cooked in a huge pot. For reasons of practicality.
