Crema de rocoto (rocoto hot sauce)


  • 4 tablespoons of rocoto paste. You can use more rocoto paste if you want it spicier or replace the paste with two seeded rocotos.
  • 2 medium size onions in slices
  • 8 garlic cloves in slices
  • 6 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 teaspoon of huacatay paste (you can prepare this sauce without huacatay if you are unable to find it)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt

Add two tablespoons of oil to a pan over medium heat and saute onion, garlic, huacatay and salt until onion is light brown. Add the rocoto paste and saute for one more minute.

After the ingredients have cooled than a little pour them into a blender, add the remaining oil and blend until you get an homogenous cream. Add more oil and salt if needed.
