These small, oval-shaped sausages are charming and delicious even though they are grayish in color. They smell of peppery heat and when you bite into them, you can taste the heat of the coast, with the music and the salty air of the sea. They are served at many parties and social events.
Butifarras are typical from the Atlantic or Caribbean coast of Colombia; slowly they have spread to the rest of the country. When you buy them, they are completely cooked so you can eat them as is; you can also heat them to serve them hot. They are traditionally served with Bollo Limpio and Bollo de Yuca.
