Cocido Maragato (Maragato Stew) is a traditional dish from the region of Maragatería (León province), in the autonomous community of Castile and León, Spain. The stew would traditionally have been served to farm workers as a single meal, providing nourishment for a whole day’s work. Maragato Stew is basically a mix of ingredients from the field: soup, kale, chickpeas, and 7 meats. It is a very popular dish in Astorga and other towns in the region, such as Castrillo de los Polvazares and Santiago Millas. One of the most distinctive features of the stew is that it is served "in 3 layers" or upside down: first the meats, then the vegetables, and finally the soup.
