Aji is the Caribbean word for chili and/or peppers. It is typically associated with Peruvian cuisine, and is often mixed together with garlic and red onions to form a paste, sauce or marinade.

A great article: "The Best Ceviche in Lima, Peru". Classic ceviche preparations are a mix of fish, salt, red onions and ají, Peru's unique line of chili peppers, all doused in lime juice. (The marinade is called leche de tigre, or tiger's milk.)

Aji amarillo, or amarillo chile, is the most common type of aji and is one of the most important ingredients in Peruvian cooking. It has a heat level of 7 on a scale of 10 (50,000 Scoville units). It is great in combination with meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, pasta, and rice dishes, and is used to season nuts.

The unique flavor of the Aji Amarillo makes it worth seeking out and incorporating into your cooking. Even though it is a "chile pepper" it has a lot of fruitiness combined with its heat. It is a very versatile chile that will complement your dish without overwhelming it.

Aji Panca Organic Chili Pods (dried)
Aji Panca Organic Chili Pods (dried) Be the first one to write a review

One of the most common types of aji (chili) in Peru, Aji Panca is 3 to 5 inches in length and has a thick flesh that matures from a green to dark red in color. Distinct from the other ajis in its spiciness, Aji Panca is mild in heat intensity (a heat level of 2 on a scale of 10; 1,500 Scoville units) and provides a fruity, berry-like flavor that goes well in stews, sauces, and fish dishes.

Aji panca is so sweet, so berry-like, that it can be finely chopped or ground into a powder and tossed into foods to add a sweet, mild heat.

To create a paste, remove the stems and soak ajis in water overnight. Drain and mix ajis in a blender with salt, pepper, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. For a more mild paste, remove the seeds and veins before blending. You can freeze the paste for longer storage as necessary.

The unique flavor of the Aji Amarillo makes it worth seeking out and incorporating into your cooking. Even though it is a "chili pepper" it has a lot of fruitiness combined with its heat, unlike poblanos or jalapenos which can be harsh. It is a very versatile chili, suitable for everyday use as it will complement your dish without overwhelming it.

Aji Limo Organic Chili Pods (dried) Be the first one to write a review

Aji Limo is a chili grown and used mostly on the northern coast of Peru. The pod is 2-3 inches long and changes from a yellow to deep reddish-orange color when it ripens. Aji Limo is spicy (a heat level of 8 on a scale of 10; 60,000 Scoville units) and is primarily used to prepare ceviche and rice dishes. It is also wonderful as a base for chicken and pasta recipes, and a perfect way to add an extra flavor dimension to stew and chili.

To create a paste, remove the stems and soak ajis in water overnight. Drain and mix ajis in a blender with salt, pepper, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. For a more mild paste, remove the seeds and veins before blending. You can freeze the paste for longer storage as necessary.
