Papa con Ocopa

Ocopa Sauce

One of my favorite things about the Peruvian kitchen is the use of common items to finish off a dish. So often, this is seen with the addition of saltine crackers to slightly thicken a stew. But, I almost feel like a kid throwing in animal crackers to this delicious sauce.
