Olluquito is a dish made of meat and olluco, a potato-looking vegetable of the same family. Traditionally Olluquito is made with charqui—salt-dried/dehydrated llama meat.

Many Peruvians don't eat Olluquito with llama meat outside of the highlands, opting to replace the ingredient with beef instead.
