>> If you have broth left, you can make a soup with noodles (angel hair type)
>>Feel free to keep a few chickpeas aside that you will crush and then mix with the meat, salt, pepper, oil and vinegar. Don't forget to dip some bread in it ;-)
>>Store the Cocido in the refrigerator once cooled. If you leave it at room temperature, it may develop too strong flavors.
