DANTEL, Bolivia — — Bolero dantella, a popular dessert dish with a spicy tang, has been a popular dish in the Bolivian capital since the 1970s.
The dessert was invented in Bolivia, which is a small nation of just over 2 million people, by an ethnic group known as the Boleros who are descended from indigenous Toltec people who settled the region around the lake of Puebla in the late 19th century.
It is one of the most famous dishes in Bolivia.
Bolero da muerte is a traditional Bolero dish with cream and nuts and topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a dollops of chopped nuts.
It was created by a group of young Boleros and is often served at weddings and parties.
Boleros are not traditionally considered part of Bolivia’s majority population and are usually perceived as outsiders, especially by locals, because of their long history in Bolivia dating back to the early 1900s.
Some Bolero people are also unhappy with the dish’s association with the nation’s president, Evo Morales.
The Bolero president’s popularity has fallen with some Boleros expressing fears of the country’s continued political chaos.
“We don’t want to be seen as the country that is supporting the country and is supporting a leader that has been elected by the people,” said Alejandro, a 26-year-old Bolero, as he shared his dish with CNN’s Cristina Armas.
“What do you want us to do?
Are you afraid?
Are we afraid to give up?”
He added that Boleros were concerned that Morales is an “anti-elite” who is trying to divide the Bolero nation.
Alejandro said Boleros do not feel comfortable about having their dishes associated with the Bolotians’ leader.
“I don’t like it.
I don’t know what you want me to do.
I feel bad for Bolero because we are indigenous,” he said.
A spokesman for Morales’ administration did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
The dishes that have come to symbolize the country are also widely enjoyed by locals.
They are served at dinner parties, as well as at weddings, bar mitzvahs and other social gatherings.
“There is an elitism, that’s why it’s called bolero, but there is also a tradition,” Alejandro said.
