Food Glossary: Locro/Yaguarlocro

Locro is a typical soup found in Ecuador.  It is a thick smooth soup with potatoes and corn and then avocado and cheese floating on the top.  It is absolutely delicious and a must try on any visit to Ecuador.  I tried it in a café in Quito but you would also find it at the markets and street food stalls.

Another popular variant is Yaguarlocro which has chunks of fried blood sausage floating.
