Baho Recipe

Recipe for SOMA resident Nelson Obando’s favorite Nicaraguan dish

Baho Recipe


– 3 yuccas, and plantains (green and ripe)
– 3 lbs. of beef (cecina)
– 2 tomatoes and onions
– half of a head of cabbage
– 3 garlic cloves
– 1 onion
– 1/2 cup orange juice
– banana leaves (to cover the large pot)

Put a little salt, the orange juice, garlic, chopped onion and leave it marinating for two to three days or put it on a string in the sun.


  1. Once the meat is ready, peel yucca and green bananas, cut the bananas in half. Cut the onion and tomatoes in large slices.
  2. Using a large pot, cover the bottom of the pot with banana leaves so that when water is added at the end, none leaks in. Then place the cassava around the bottom of the pot, attempting to get a hole in the center. We then add the green plantains, then add the ripe ones on top. In the remaining hole, place the meat and add onion and tomatoes. Close the leaves around of all the ingredients, adding more leaves to the top if necessary. Around the closed leaves, add three cups of water. Let boil for two hours, then lower the flame and let cook for two more. You can add more water if you need to.
  3. Serve it with cabbage and tomato salad on top.
