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. MORE + LESS -
