Mondongo Stew!

Like beef? Nothing fills an empty stomach like… a cow’s stomach!

Mondongo is just that. And mondongo stew is one of the best creole delicacies on the coast. While you can find mondongo on the Pacific side of Nicaragua, they sure don’t cook it like this.


1 cow stomach (aka mondongo)
2 liters coconut milk
2lbs pealed taro root
2 leaves oregano
1 onion
1 small bell pepper
1 habenero pepper
salt to taste

Clean and boil the mondongo until it is soft. On the side, boil the coconut milk and add the taro, oregano, onion and peppers whole. Add the salt. Boil for 20 minutes and add the mondongo cut into bite-sized pieces. Boil another ten minutes.
