How to Make Ajiaco de papas ~ Peruvian Cheesy Potatoes
- Peel the potatoes and boil in lightly salted water. When done, drain well and cube.
- Saute garlic, onion, and aji paste or chiles in oil until the onion is slightly golden.
- To the sautéed onions, add potatoes and milk, and stir carefully so as not to mash the potatoes.
- Add the cheese and eggs to the potatoes, and cook just enough to heat through and serve. Garnish with a bit of chopped fresh parsley if desired. Enjoy!!
