    I am originally from Peru. My country has an amazing variety of dishes and flavors. I've never heared of this recipe in my entire life. Sorry, but I don't think it represent our culinary past :o(

    I have made this several times and it is delish. One thing to note, one time I made it with regular dry roasted peanuts and the next time with "no salt" dry roasted peanuts. I could really taste an over all difference, likely due to the fact that regular dry roasted nuts have several other seasonings added besides salt. I would just recommend adding a little salt and sautéing a clove of garlic along with the onion (which I will try next time). Also, don't skip the cilantro, it really adds to the overall flavor of the stew.
