DIRECTIONS

  • Saute the chiles, onion and garlic in a tablespoon of the oil until soft.
  • Place in a blender or food processor along with the peanuts, crackers, cheese, milk and cilantro and puree until smooth.
  • Add the lemon juice and, with the machine running, add the oil a little at a time until the sauce is the desired consistency.
  • Heat before serving, and store any extra in the refrigerator.
  • Note: Using saltine crackers to thicken a sauce is unusual but not uncommon in Peru.
  • This all-purpose sauce can be served with potatoes, french fries, corn chips, fried foods, seafood, steaks or anything else imaginable.
  • The more you add, the hotter it gets and the BETTER it tastes.
