Beloved by the Incas for its sunny golden color and complex flavor, the Aji Amarillo chili pepper is characterized by notes of berry with a mild yet intense spice. In every Peruvian home, we find this chilli to set base for many of the delicious dishes that come from Perú.
For our Roots Radicals Aji Amarillo Hot Sauce we smoke the chilies to give this already distinctive pepper an extra layer of awesomeness. The result is a unique hot sauce with a velvety smooth, smoky spice that pairs with almost any savory dish. Make a tiradito or a cebiche with it, add it to your tacos for a twist on Peruvian flavours, make a huancaina sauce with a smoky taste and of course use it to accompany any other Peruvian dish or recipe base – the possibilities are countless! You can also use this hot sauce as a side to sandwiches, french fries, breakfast eggs, etc!
