What is sancocho?
Firstly, let’s talk about the word sancocho. The word comes from the Spanish verb sancochar (meaning “to parboil” in English), and it’s a traditional stew very common in Latin American countries, like the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. It originated in the Spanish Canary Islands as a fish-stew soup. Canary islanders who immigrated to Latin America brought sancocho to Latin America.
