Homemade Creamy Pesto

Ajiaco or Colombian chicken soup

This right here is by far my favourite Colombian dish. The Amazing Ajiaco Santafereño, which, as its name tells us comes from Santa fe de Bogotá.  It is one of the city’s staple dishes. However, as much as I love it, I had never tried to make it, until this year! This year after Christmas,
