I never get tired of eating beans. If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, I think I could comfortably survive eating bean soup everyday. After all, I am Peruvian and my mother is Central American, so you can say this passion for beans runs through my blood. However, my love for beans is not only genetic and cultural. Other than being delicious and wholesome, I absolutely love that beans are economical, easy to prepare and versatile. There is no limit to the amount of easy and cheap recipes that can be prepared with this simple ingredient. Bean escabeche, for example, is a very traditional recipe in southern Peru. This delicious dish can be served as a cold appetizer, or as a side for your main dish. I like eating it while it’s hot with a mountain of wholegrain rice. Super easy, super cheap and jam-packed with flavor! MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • You can use any bean to prepare this dish. You can also prepare the sauce to serve on top of a baked or steamed fish.
  • The original recipe uses ají amarillo instead of red pepper and panca chili peppers instead of cayenne.
  • Add the pepper and cayenne little by little while test tasting. Not everyone can tolerate the same level of spiciness.
