"A cheese sauce that goes well with Peruvian/Latin American foods. I learned the recipe from an elderly Peruvian woman! Especially good with Peruvian 'Lomos Saltado,' or as a topping for baked potatoes and hard-boiled eggs. If you want it spicier, leave a few of the seeds with the peppers." — Nate

aji amarillo peppers, seeded
saltine crackers, or as needed
crumbled queso fresco cheese, or to taste
salt to taste
it taste really good with mozzarella cheese, or white cheddar cheese instead the fresh cheese.
Have you ever substituted the queso fresco for Parmesan cheese? I prefer that taste to queso fresco. I also prefer substituting crackers for white bread, it tastes slightly sweeter. Yum...sweet and spicy. Overall, this dish is great. My favorite.
