Made with a variety of corn called “chulpe” which has longish kernels, maiz cancha is toasted on a pan until very slightly puffy. Think of it as more similar to the Filipino cornick than to popcorn.
It’s slightly salty, and its starchy taste and crunchy texture make it hard to say no to. It’s absolutely delicious, so it’s no wonder it’s such a popular snack in Peru.
Maiz Cancha is very easy to prepare:
You can serve these as aperitif, similar to a bowl of nuts. You can sprinkle Maiz Cancha on your salads to give them extra crunch. But it’s also very perfect as a snack on its own.
It’s usually served as a side to ceviche. Maiz Cancha, ceviche, and an ice-cold beer is a winning combination.
Maiz Cancha, despite being toasted with salt, is surprisingly low in sodium. It does, however, have a high fiber content, which is beneficial to the digestive system. This dried corn cancha also contains large amounts vitamins and minerals, like magnesium, vitamin B, and iron.
Store in a cool, dry place.
