Nazca Area Traditional Food

Peruvian food is getting more attention thanks to its diversity and its delicious and unique flavors. Nazca City lies in the Ica department, so you can find exquisite dishes in this area:

Some dishes you must try are:

Sopa Seca: A tasty noodle soup (Dry Soup) with flavors of achiote, basil, tomato, parsley, red pepper, and other seasonings. It is typically served with chicken, however, it may also be served with pig or chicken. The Sopa Seca goes well with Carapulcra.

Carapulcra:  This dish blends Afro-Peruvian, Spanish, and Andean cultures, it is regarded as the oldest “mestizo” (mixed)  food in Peru. Carapulcra's primary ingredient t is "dried potato." In addition, the meal has other components including pork, onion, aji panca (chili), and crushed peanuts. As you read above, this dish goes well with sopa seca.

Frejol Colado: This region has something sweet for you, we’re talking about Strained beans (in English). Despite being a classic Easter treat, you may have it any time of year. One of the features of this delicacy is that it contains molasses, sugar, milk, cloves, and beans, making it impossible to taste the beans.

Green Lima Beans Soup: These beans have high nutritional value, this time, after being soaked and cooked in an onion sauce, plenty of cheese and milk are added.

Tejas: Tejas are classic Peruvian truffles that originated in  Ica. Although their exteriors are often covered in white sugar, chocotejas—which have a chocolate layer—are also very well-liked. A layer of nuts lies beneath the coating, and then comes a manjar blanco, or dried fruit filling.
