Aha, machaca! The recipes for huevos con machaca and aporreadillo are indeed similar, but not the same. Both are made with dried meat (aporreadillo is made with cecina, while huevos con machaca is made with machaca, of course), eggs, and chile. Cecina and machaca, while similar, are not the same kind of dried meat. Cecina is made of all beef, while machaca is most often a mix of meats.
The major difference in preparation is that while huevos con machaca are a dry dish and not usually overly picante, aporreadillo is extremely spicy and served in a bowl with a large quantity of caldillo.
