Cazuela is the name of a South American (Southern Cone) Spanish-originated soup. It's a mid-thick flavoured stock obtained from cooking several kinds of meats and vegetables mixed together.
The most common types of Cazuelas in Chile are the chicken or beef, but there's also another types made from pork and turkey.
The typical Cazuela in one dish contains: a piece of meat , a potato, a piece of pumpkin, and the stock obtained from boiling this. Complementary to these components can be: cooked rice (in the stock), small-sized noodles, green beans, celery, sliced carrots, garlic, [cabbage]], among others. In summer the cazuela is accompanied by a big yellow piece of sweetcorn, cooked apart or in the same stock. The cazuela is typically eaten by consuming the liquid stock first, then eating the meat and larger vegetables last. However, the meat and larger vegetables can also be sliced up within the liquid stock and can be eaten simultaneously with the liquid stock.
