Cancha is a toasted corn snack that is very popular in Peru and Ecuador. It is made from a special type of corn, called maíz cancha chulpe or maíz chulpe. Its dried kernels are tossed with vegetable or olive oil and toasted in a hot frying pan until they are puffed and get gold brown color. When Cancha is ready, it is sprinkled with salt and is served warm or at room temperature. This delicious Peruvian appetizer has starchy crunchy flavor and is often accompanied with ceviche (popular seafood dish) or a cold beer.
