I was born in Peru and this dish is served as an entree or appetizer, can be made ahead, very nutritious,easy and has a very colorful presentation.
Peru has a variety of more or less 1,300 different potatoes. Made with yellow hot peppers, it is a versatile sauce that goes with many flavors. Serve it as a dipping sauce for bite-size boiled or sliced potatoes.
If you don't find the yellow hot pepper,use yellow bell pepper, turmeric and add some habanero pepper but be careful with the heat.
Serve it and surprise your family.
