"Cazuela" is the Spanish word for casserole, and cazuelas of
every description are found in every Spanish-speaking country.
Only in Chile has one attained the status of national dish. It is
a simple dish made with simple ingredients: a light broth with
meat (usually chicken or beef), some potatoes, and pumpkin
or winter squash, and during the summer months, corn on the
cob are the main - and often the only - ingredients. Other
vegetables such as carrots, celery, cabbage, and green beans
are often included, and noodles and rice are frequent additions.
