Papas a la Huancaina

Even if the name suggests that this dish is from Huancayo, a town in the Peruvian Andes, it was actually invented in Chosica, Lima, but by a señora from Huancayo. This delicious, typical Peruvian starter consists of boiled and sliced potatoes with a spicy cheese and Peruvian yellow chili pepper sauce called Salsa Huancaina. Simple, but absolutely delicious! Papas a la Huancaina are served cold with a garnish of black olives and hardboiled egg.

Papas a la Huancaina are a great starter or perfect lunch on a hot summer day. Despite being simple and prepared in no time, this typical Creole cuisine dish impresses with its creamy, spicy (not hot) cheese sauce. Delicious!
