Mote de Queso is a delicious chowder; it is a little thick, flavored by the guiso and topped by the almost-melted cheese. It comes from the department of Córdoba. Ñame* is the main ingredient in this recipe and therefore it cannot be replaced by anything else. Ñame blanco espino is the best variety for this recipe, but any kind of ñame will do.
If you have had ñame in soups before and think it is a little bland, please try it this way: I guarantee it is a delicious potage.
