ingredients + optional


– Wash and scrub the potatoes, then slice them into slices lengthwise. Think “French fry” size. You can leave the skins on, if desired.


– Cover the potatoes in a bowl with cold water and let them soak. Then drain and pat the potatoes as dry as you can get them. Preheat oven. Toss the potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. Be sure to get them nicely coated.


– Spread the fries out onto baking sheets and bake them, tossing a bit about half way through. – Increase the heat and bake until the baked fries are nice and crispy and golden brown. Keep warm.


– Heat the oil in a large pan and add the sausages (hot dogs). Cook to warm them through. – Slice the sausages into bite-sized pieces.


– Whisk the ingredients together in a small bowl.


– Spread the French fries onto a serving platter, then top with sausages. – Drizzle on the aji Amarillo sauce and fresh parsley (if desired).


– Serve with ketchup and mustard on the side, or drizzled over the top.
