Sorry - my tardy reply is due to a dysfunctional internet connection.
I think the author who related capirotada with olla podrida was thinking 
about the sauce on top and being a meat dish while olla podrida is a 
meat and veggie stew. Now if that author is as bad as a cook as I, his 
capirotada is barely distinguishable from the olla podrida as the meat 
and bread float around in the sauce like little boys sail boats in big 
ponds.
Joking aside that author missed the salient point about capirotada - I 
think this is one of the first recipes we have calling for grated cheese 
if not the first.
