Peruvian Locro (Butternut Squash)

I got this recipe from my husband’s grandmother who is from Peru. This recipe is delicious and healthy. It is also filling. The butternut squash, corn, and sweet peas are combined into a delicious dish for the whole family. Serve with a side of French bread. And enjoy!



Step: 1

Place squash in a large pot and add enough water to cover; season with salt. Bring water to a boil and cook until squash is tender, about 20 minutes. Drain squash and return to pot.

Step: 2

Mash squash with a potato masher; add evaporated milk, butter, and salt and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir corn, peas, and Cheddar cheese into squash mixture; cook and stir over medium-low heat until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Serve squash mixture over rice.
