      Note: Using saltine crackers to thicken a sauce is unusual but not uncommon in Peru.

      This was very good! I use feta cheese instead of mozarella because the consistency and flavor are more similar to the "queso fresco" or fresh farmer cheese that we use in Peru to make this. I had never used cilantro or lemon for this though... it was different but yummy!
