Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from La receta original no tiene punto de comparación con la publicada. La receta original no tiene punto de comparación con la publicada. Por favor, no cambien los ingredientes si van a dar recetas de comida peruana. Carapulcra se hace con papa seca, sino no es carapulcra. La comida peruana es muy rica y diferente, por eso es conocida. Los peruanos en EE.UU. pueden adquirir productos peruanos en algunas ciudades como, Miami, Chicago, New York, New Jersey, etc.
