There are almost as many variations on ajiaco as there are Cuban cooks. The traditional base of this hearty soup or stew is root vegetables, cooked with whatever meat is available. This version includes pork and chicken, the two meats that are most available in modern Cuba. Serve the ajiaco with warm, crusty Pan Cubano (Cuban Bread).
