For an even more polished presentation, top with olives.

This delicious recipe, potatoes with red pepper cream sauce, made its way into my collection thanks to my mom. I tried it once in Lima, when I was little, but didn’t remember ever having it. It’s a variation of the famous papa a la huancaína. The difference? It’s made with red peppers instead of ají amarillo. The red peppers give the cream fresh color and a not too spicy flavor. It’s simply delicious!

Directions

  • 1 Parboil the potatoes and eggs.
  • 2 While cooking, blend the cheese with the evaporated milk and bell peppers. Add the crackers until a creamy texture is achieved. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • 3 Once the eggs and potatoes are cooked, let cool for a few minutes before peeling, and slice.
  • 4 Arrange 2 lettuce leaves on a plate for garnish. Add a layer of potatoes and cover with the bell pepper cream. Add the sliced egg, and sprinkle with chopped parsley for garnish.
  • 5 Serve immediately.
