Causa is one of Peru’s most popular dishes, a cold casserole that’s part mashed potatoes, part potato salad, and part mayonnaise-y salad with a meat like tuna or chicken. It’d be the perfect American potluck dish, if Americans knew what it was. This recipe gives the option of using homemade or store-bought aji amarillo paste (made from a Peruvian chili pepper), and either tuna or chicken meat.
