chupe (uncountable)

  1. A stew containing meat and potatoes, part of Chilean and Peruvian cuisine.
    • 1854, William Lewis Herndon, Lardner Gibbon, Exploration of the Amazon Valley
      Chupe is the Peruvian national dish, and may be made of any and every thing, so long as it holds its relationship to soup. It is made generally of mutton, potatoes, eggs, rice, all highly seasoned with pepper, &c.
    • 1868, Harper's New Monthly Magazine
      And as chupe is the eternal and almost always the sole dish obtainable in the interior of Peru and in Bolivia, I may as well dispose of it at once.

      Here can be purchased all the native articles of luxury: coca, chupe, frozen potatoes, parched corn, and chicha []
