These organic Peruvian chiles are grown by a farm collective in Chincha, Peru that focus on cultivation of indigenous crops to restore the land and strengthen community. Also called aji Mirasol, Escabeche or Cusqueno. Aji Amarillo grows all over Peru since its one of the few peppers that has been domesticated, although its name means “yellow pepper” the young fruit starts out green, turns yellow at its harvesting peak, but the color changes to orange as it matures.
Aji Amarillo is an incredibly fruity chile pepper with medium heat. Due to the fruitiness we love to use this chile in tropical recipes.
Aji Amarillo is the name of a Peruvian chile and is the backbone of Peruvian cuisine.
This chile is often used fresh in Peru and when it is dried it is sometimes referred to as Aji mirasol. We get this chile right after it is harvested and dried so it still contains the fruity notes of the fresh chile and the bright yellow color. Soak these and create a paste that can be used as a marinade or even a delicious dipping sauce.
