Expert Tips

If you can't find ají, you can use another type of pepper like serrano.

The butifarra is a traditional Peruvian sandwich made with local ham called jamón del país. It's made by cooking a boned hind leg of pork with a mixture of ingredients like pepper, garlic, achiote and cumin. Since I live in California, I don't have easy access to this kind of ham, so I used turkey ham to create these delicious butifarras. I hope you like it as much as I do and prepare if for your next summer picnic.

Directions

  • 1 To make the criolla sauce, julienne the onion, add the lime juice and ají chopped into small slices or pieces.
  • 2 Heat the oven and warm the bread. Once warmed, cut the breads in half horizontally without separating the two sides.
  • 3 Spread the mayo, mustard and ground ají (optional).
  • 4 Add the lettuce and ham then cover in criolla sauce.
