Salsa Huancaina

If you are looking for a simple sauce to accompany your dishes at a Peruvian restaurant, you should try Salsa Huancaina. Made with fresh white cheese and yellow chili, it is creamy and sometimes spicy. This sauce goes well with Peruvian comfort foods.

Salsa De Rocoto

Salsa Verde De Cilantro

Salsa Ocopa
