Suero a tangy dip from Colombian Coast
The best condiment you haven’t tried. This creamy white sauce or dip is used on all kinds of foods for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Mostly eaten on the coast of Colombia it’s so easy to make you can eat it anywhere in the world. The original is specially made from milk and made to the perfect specifications. Anywhere else the base is sour cream. This tangy almost sour sauce is dripped on sausage and bollo like a corn based tamale without the meat I also love it on boiled or fried yuca. The ultimate snack with Suero is plantain chips! Try this dip at your next dinner party or BBQ.
The word Suero in Spanish means from milk or in the medical world means serum or concentration of liquid. The dip is thick like a serum but based from milk. There is no other dish I can think of to compare it to but the milk has that tangy bit of buttermilk that lingers on your tounge till the next bite.
My first experience with suero was at Narcobollo in Barranquilla Colombia. The most amazing breakfast I had, every kind of fried, delicious item was housed there with fresh juice of every kind of fruit. Most memorable was the creamy delicious sauce that went on top of it all. When I went back for thirds on Suero I knew I had to find a way to eat this back home. I hope that you will find as much joy in this dip as I have and if you are interested in learning more check out the rest of Gringa Chef for recipes, tips and culture.
