Some of the foods are rice, potatoes, chicken, pork, fish, lamb, and a few most American people haven’t heard of are “aji” peppers. The peppers they use in different dishes are yellow and red “aji” peppers and some red rocoto peppers. All of the peppers are hot Peruvian peppers.
The flag of Peru is red, white, green, turquoise, gold, brown, and yellow. The red on the flag stands for blood that was shed from Peruvian peoples while fighting for Peruvian independence.
