¡ Buen provecho !

This dish is staple of everyday and holiday cuisine throughout the country of Peru. The name is derived from Huancayo, a city in the Peruvian highlands, but the dish originated in Lima. 

Papa a la Huancaina

INGREDIENTS:

 

4 seedless yellow chili peppers

2 tablespoons oil

6 crackers

¾ cup farmer cheese (queso fresco)

1 cup evaporated milk

Salt and pepper to taste

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

1. Bring peppers to boil (to make them less spicy) until bright yellow, about 10 minutes. Strain water.

2. Blend peppers with the rest of the ingredients until you get a creamy texture. Taste salt and add more if necessary.

3. If too watery, add oil little by little while blending to get the right texture.

4. Serve over boiled potatoes.
