The Aji Amarillo is a South American pepper, which is especially popular in Peru and Bolivia. In Peruvian cuisine, the Aji Amarillo, together with the red onion and garlic, is part of the ‘Holy Trinity’ in the kitchen. Amarillo means yellow in Spanish, but the Aji Amarillo is really orange of colour. The pepper is medium hot and is mainly known for its delicious fruity aromas, reminiscent of a peach. This makes the pepper delicious in cheviche, salsa verde or sauces.
