In my life I have prepared nachos only once ( Nachos de Camarones) and my family asked me to make some more.
This special wish came perfect with the given list of ingredients I for the game “ready set cook” as tortilla and chicken were among the options.
The combination were done quite quickly and the result delicious.
I did not add cheese (as not in the list J ), and exactly had been appreciated as the dish resulted lighter; I think I would have added some cumin, but all spice was a great alternative and finally the addition of the thick yogurt made the dish fresher!
I recommend not adding too much salt, as the chips are usually salted; adapt the quantity to the chips!
A Peruvian recipe for Cilantro lovers as cilantro is the principal source of flavor of this specialty!
“Seco” is another very popular recipe of Peruvian cuisine and has the Arab influences brought by the Spaniards. Seco can be made with beef, goat, chicken other kind of meat. I made it with chicken but if you prepare it with beef or goat you should cook it about 2-3 hours until the meat is tender.
We enjoyed this recipe in Arequipa in a very simple restaurant where we got a huge well smelling and filling portion. Today this dish is so beloved that you can find it almost overall in Peru.
Today I had lot of fresh cilantro from a Turkish shop, the perfect occasion to prepare this dish!
I prepared some ají amarillo paste myself for this recipe and I canned some portions for the next recipes.
As many other dishes all over Peru this is served with rice even if you have a carb ingredients in the stew itself: the potatoes!
