In the Philippines, a whole hotdog either goes into split bread or alongside rice and fried eggs. Meanwhile, sliced hotdogs are a popular ingredient for spaghetti sauce. I bet that Filipinos will love how the Peruvians enjoy their hotdogs—with fries! The dish is called salchipapas and it is a popular fast food.
Salchipapas? Yep, I just discovered a beautiful Peruvian food blog which explains the name as salchichas (sausages) + papas (potatoes). Salchipapas is traditionally served with four dipping sauces—mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and aji (Peruvian chili sauce). I didn’t have time to make aji so I used hot ketchup for the chili factor.
