Salchipapas is a popular type of Peruvian street food. It is a combination of beef sausages and French fries typically served with sauces such as ketchup. The word salchipapas is derived from the Spanish words salchicha, meaning sausage, and papa, meaning potato. At times, a fried egg or cheese is added on top.

As an alternative, I used hot dogs to replace the sausages. Then I served it with my homemade garlic aioli. Check out my recipe to enjoy this Peruvian street food in your own home.

      HI Pamela,

      I agree. It's really simple. Who would imagine that the combination of fries and hotdog can be a popular snack in other places of the world.
