Explanation: I'd work with synonyms such as pottage, hot-potch, soup, broth. As a matter of fact, in Spain the names of such dishes vary from region/town/family to the next a great deal. The way I see it (Andalusia), what they are calling a puchero is the cocido minus "la pringá" (meat-chicken separated to be eaten as second course or left-over)
