This spicy, creamy, piquant cheese sauce is one of the wonders of Peruvian cuisine. There are work-arounds for the less familiar ingredients, like queso blanco and aji amarillo. Huancaina sauce is also pretty awesome on grilled chicken and seafood.
Step 1: Place the ingredients for the sauce in a food processor and puree until smooth.
Step 2: Correct the seasoning, adding salt or lemon juice to taste; the sauce should be highly seasoned.
