Sancocho is a traditional Latin American soup that is comforting, hearty and rustic. We love to make it and eat it at home at least once a week. Being born in Panama to a Colombian mother, I grew up eating Sancocho all the time and now my children are too, it’s safe to say this dish is a special tradition in my family.

Over the years we’ve changed bits and pieces of the recipe. I prefer a more orange tone to the soup with lots of butternut squash, some sweet potato and less of the regular potato that it typically calls for. This makes the dish a little lighter but at the same time, the squash thickens the soup as it falls apart.

While this recipe makes 6 servings, I usually double it because somebody always wants Sancocho leftovers for lunch the next day. We hope you enjoy this tasty and satisfying dish as much as we do!
