Directions

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