Causa is a typical dish/appetizer of Peru. It consists of mashed potatoes that have been flavored with oils and spices, and formed in layers with stuffing in the middle. Typical stuffings are vegetable medley, chicken salad, tuna salad, hard boiled eggs, olives and salmon. Different colored layers are achieved by using different species of potatoes. Fingerlings yield yellow, purple potatoes yield purple and white potatoes yield white, and so on.
Serves 2 guests as appetizers (4 pieces). Made to order. Never frozen.
