Peruvian Causa

The name may sound exotic, but this traditional Peruvian potato dish is really just good old-fashioned comfort food.


2 lbs. purple potatoes

2 Tbsp. canola oil

2 Tbsp. Aji chile peppers, pureed

2 Tbsp. Ready-Set-Serve Lime Juice

1 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

2 cups crab salad

2 cups Ready-Set-Serve Avocado Pulp

1/2 cup Markon First Crop Grape Tomatoes, halved

1 hard-boiled egg, quartered

2 Tbsp. black olives, sliced

Ready-Set-Serve Bunched Cilantro, to garnish


Peel and boil potatoes; mash with canola oil, chile puree, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Cool.

Using an oiled circular mold, layer equal portions of mashed potatoes, avocado pulp, crab salad, avocado pulp, and mashed potatoes.

Plate by removing circular mold rings and topping with egg, tomato, olives, and cilantro.
