I am doing a project for Spanish class and I need a recipe from Peru. Please Help!
I just printed out some Hispanic recipes from AOL--I clicked on a link to get there from my AOL homepage, so I'm not sure of the exact link, but the pages I printed are from AOL Latino: Tu Vida: Specials: Hispanic Heritage Month: Recipes. If all else fails, you could probably just go to AOL and search for "Peru recipe". I'm almost positive they had at least one Peruvian recipe; they had a lot of S. American countries listed. Hope this helps!
Papas a la Huancaína (8 servings)
You can make it with cheese from Mayobamba, which is similar to romano but much more pungent. White Mexican cheese or feta also works.
10 medium potatoes (new potatoes are best)
1 pound of cheese (see above)
2 small hot peppers
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic
Lay a bed of lettuce in a serving dish and place the potatoes on top. Cover with the sauce. Cut the hard boiled eggs in half and place on top of the potatoes. Add black olives if desired.
This dish can be served slightly cold.
