Share it:

Papa a la Huancaina is a cold appetizer or entree, a key dish of Criollan food (the food from Lima) and one of the most beloved. It is basically cooked potatoes served with a creamy sauce made with cheese and aji.

"This is just great tasting. I can't stop eating it warm or cold, the sauce is incredible. Smooth and rich with a intoxicating creamy heat that just doesn't stop. The onions on top are the perfect counterpart to cool and add a sense of crispness to this dish. OMG I need to ask the girlfriend to make it again, Soonish.."
