The Aji Amarillo is a South American pepper, which is especially popular in Peru and Bolivia. The Aji peppers are the edible gold of Peru and have a spicy, fruity, colourful and creamy taste. In Peruvian cuisine, the Aji Amarillo, together with red onion and garlic, is part of the ‘holy trinity’ and the basis of many dishes. The pepper is medium hot and is best known for its delicious fruity aromas, reminiscent of a peach. This makes the pepper delicious in cheviche, salsa verde or sauces.
Amarillo is the Spanish word for yellow, yet the pepper is really orange in colour. This is because the Aji Amarillo Paste, which is made from the fruity orange pepper, is yellow of colour. This is a good way of checking whether the paste is pure; if it is orange, extra ingredients or flavour enhancers have been added.
