Papas a la Huancaina consists of milk, saltine crackers, cheese, and peppers all blended together in a blender to make a cream that is then poured over slices of boiled yellow potatoes. The plate is then usually garnished with lettuce and olives, though the garnish can vary and you may get slices of boiled egg or even slices of tomato. The softness of the boiled potatoes combines perfectly with the consistency of the cream. This is overall an incredibly enjoyable dish.
