Sandwich de Chola

Welcome back to Wacataya Wednesdays!

The World Cup soccer tournament kicked off early Friday morning 6/11/10. There are 32 countries playing in the World Cup and I thought it would be interesting to talk about stadium food. Here in the U.S. you can always find hot dogs at stadiums whether you are watching American football, soccer or baseball. Of course there are other snacks and beverages available, but hot dogs are always at the top of the list.

For the World Cup, the South African stadium will also have hot dogs but they will be served in boerewors rolls (boerewors are a popular South Afrian sausage). Boerewors rolls are larger than a typical hot dog bun, rectangular and made of heartier, chewier dough.

In Bolivia the popular stadium food is Sandwich de Chola. Bella and I have readers from all over the world and we would love to know what foods are served at sports games and at stadiums in all those countries. Please tell us what food is popular in your country by submitting a comment to this post or by emailing nolys@nolys.vpweb.com.

The Sandwich de Chola is a large, hearty, round bun (bread used for muffuletas works well) filled with slices of roast pork leg. The pork is topped with a sauce made from yellow chilies and a mixture of pickled vegetables including onions, carrots and locotos. On the very top of the bun is placed a small piece of crispy fried pork skin.

If you don't want to make your own pickled vegetables from scratch you can use a combination of giardiniera, pickled green beansmuffuleta mix, or any other marinated vegetable combination you prefer.
