Peruvian Papa Huancaina - Willy's Style

Total Time

Willy, a Peruvian friend gave me this recipe verbatim. The cheese sauce for this potato dish is one of the better ones that I have tasted. A Peruvian guest of mine practically drank up the whole sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place boiled eggs, potatoes and onions on a serving dish.
  2. Blend together in a blender the cream cheese, aji or yellow pepper, garlic, crackers, oil, milk, salt and pepper for 5 minutes until you get a thick mixture.
  3. It should be just thick enough to cover the potatoes.
  4. If the cheese sauce is watery, add half a boiled potato to thicken the sauce a little.
  5. Remove from the blender and pour over the potatoes and eggs.
  6. Top with black olives and lettuce for decoration.

It tastes just like the one they serve in Peruvian restaurants! Delicious. Although, I do add some turmeric for the color.
