The next day, drain it, dice it, and combine it with 1/2 pound of fresh beef and 1/2 pound of fresh pork, and brown in some peanut oil. While that's cooking, prepare all the vegetables. (You could also save yourself all the peeling and dicing and go to the bodega and buy a bag of ajiaco vegetables. I'd never even heard of the soup before, but such an item exists!)
Wayne likes peeling and dicing! He used corn on the cob, green pepper, onion, garlic, sweet potato, butternut squash, yuca, taro, a green plantain and a ripe plantain. Salt and pepper to taste and stir in a can (8 oz) of tomato sauce and the juice from one lemon.
