Cancha

Marian Blazes
Cancha is a popular snack in the Andean countries, often served alongside ceviche. It's made from a special variety of corn (maiz chulpe) that doesn't pop like popcorn, but instead swells into a sort of homemade corn nut. Cancha is great for parties - everyone loves to munch on it while enjoying their pisco sours, and it's easy to prepare. You can find maiz chulpe at Latin markets and online.
