Cocido ponceño is also known as chickpeas and pigs’ feet stew. It’s one of the more famous stews from the Ciudad Señoral (Ponce) and one that we inherited from the Spanish during colonial times. Despite the fact that the average temperature of this city is 100° F, the people of Ponce are not intimated by the heat of this dish and we enjoy it any time of year. It’s always on someone’s weekly menu. MORE + LESS -
