Sancocho is a hearty soup, almost like a stew and is a traditional dish in the region of Antioquia, Colombia that combines potatoes, yuca, corn, plantains and meat. For me and my family this is the ultimate comfort food and is absolutely delicious.

3medium potatoes(peeled and chopped into 2 inch pieces)
3piecesof yucca(about 2 cups)
3ears corn(cut in half)
1small green plantain(peeled and chopped into 1" pieces)

In a large pot, saute scallions, onions and garlic in oil. Add tomatoes and saute another minute.
Add chicken pieces and season with a little salt. Saute a few minutes, then add yucca and plantain and fill pot with water.
Add chicken bullion, cumin and half of the cilantro and cover pot.
Simmer on low for about 40 minutes. After 40 minutes, adjust salt and add potatoes, cook and additional 15 minutes.
