Pique macho

Pique macho (pronounced pee-kay maacho) is a typical Bolivian food. It is a heaped plate consisting of bite-sized pieces of beef, sausage (hot dog type), and french fry-cut potatoes. Added to this mixture are onions, locoto, boiled egg, mustard, mayonnaise, and ketchup.

Smaller portions are simply called pique; pique macho is a huge portion. Urban legend suggests that this is because you are macho if you can finish one by yourself.
