White Boy Charquican

November 26, 2009

SAW THIS STUFF ONCE on one of those travel cooking shows. Based on the quick description given on the show and consulting several online recipes, I set about making a holiday side dish.

White Boy Charquican


1/2 lb potatoes peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 lb pumpkin de-seeded, peeled and cut into chunks
1 good sized carrot peeled and cut into chunks
chicken broth

1 cup of meat (omit for side-dish)
1 onion chopped
1/2 bell pepper chopped
1 or 2 Serrano peppers chopped small, practically minced
1/2 cup corn
1 clove garlic minced
olive oil


Boil potatoes, pumpkin and carrot in broth until tender, drain broth and mash.
Saute the remaining ingredients in oil, season to taste and simmer.
Combine the two parts together and mix.
