Recipe by Chocolatl

In Peru, Huancaina sauce (sauce from Huancayo) is most often served over cold or room-temperature potatoes. However it is sometimes used in other ways; this is one of them. You can substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried ground chilies for the fresh. Adapted from Pan American's Complete Round the World Cookbook.
