Butifarra Soledeña (sausage of Soledad, Atlántico) is a type of botifarra that has developed into a regional specialty in Colombian cuisine. It is made from ground beef and pork with seasoning and spices. The meat is cut into pieces and boiled. The mixture is encased in intestine and tied off with string into sections. The lengths are boiled. Butifarras Soledeñas are hawked in the street by vendors calling out "buti, buti, buti" while drumming on the metal containers from which they are sold. Butifarras Soledeñas are often offered with fresh squeezed lime juice.
