Bolivian soups and stews are generally very hearty and nutritious. Many use some very surprising ingredients: like bone marrow, peanuts and even plantains. In Western Bolivia (the Andes mountain and valleys region) soups and stews are eaten almost on a daily basis and a typical full meal consists of two or three courses (salad, soup and the main course). In addition, traditional Bolivian food in the Andes is often very spicy. Some believe it's because the climate is cool or cold during most of the year.
