Quick to make, a bit of heat, wholesome/affordable potato-based and pleasantly different! We’re speaking of “Papa a la Huancaina,” (pronounced “Won-kay-eena“) or Huancayo-style potatoes, cheesy, spicy and delicious. Also, papas, this way, give you a chance to display your presentation skills.
Simply described, you need only boil and slice potatoes. While they are working, put an interesting group of ingredients into a blender or processor, make it smooth, then place on lettuce and garnish with olive, hard-boiled eggs, cilantro and any other garnish you think interesting.
Serve Papa a la Huancaína as a dazzling warm or room temp appetizer or a side/veggie with meat or fish. Note a Bolivian version calling for peanut flavoring.
