La Paz Bachoy
Deco's Batchoy

Bachoy is the quintessential Iloilo dish,said to have originated in the market of La Paz, Iloilo by a butcher named Deco, who wanted to make use of the less popular, inexpensive cuts of meat. 

Thus the original recipe contained pork liver, pancreas, heart, stomach, tripe, spleen and kidney. Today's more modern version eliminates some of these butcher trimmings but a good, rich broth is still a must.
