Expert Tips

This recipe is traditionally made with hen but if you can’t find it, use chicken.

This is the perfect dish to warm up during cold days and it’s also delicious and very easy to make. You probably know the original chupe recipe from Peru, but in Venezuela this dish made with hen is very popular, especially in the Andean region. We have our own family recipe, and I have adapted it and made it a little modern so it can be more practical for busy days. Make it and tell us how it turns out!

Directions

  • 1 In a large pot, add chicken stock, onion and garlic. Bring to a boil, then add potatoes and pieces of fresh corn. Cover and let cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
  • 2 Add cans of corn; cover and let cook for another 10 minutes.
  • 3 Add hen pieces, cilantro and let cook for 3-5 minutes. Adjust salt seasoning.
  • 4 Lower heat to low and add table cream, stirring continuously until it’s mixed in well. Turn off the heat. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  • 5 Serve warm with pieces of queso fresco and cilantro.
