CFCA serves more than 10,000 sponsored children and elderly in Nicaragua. Our staff members there sent us this tasty recipe for “indio viejo,” or a corn-based, slow-cooked stew!
The Nicaraguan people are experts at making a variety of food dishes based on corn. This is a culture inherited from their ancestors.
In rural communities, corn-based meals are consumed daily. One of them is indio viejo, which is usually served as the main dish with rice, fried plantain and coleslaw salad. Sometimes, however, it is served as a secondary dish.
This recipe is for five people. See the full recipe
