Aji Amarillo Chile Powder / 18 oz
Aji Amarillo Powder is made from dried and pulverized aji amarillo chiles. These are the most common chile in Peru, sometimes referred to as the yellow chile or the Peruvian chile. Convenient and easy to use, this fine textured powder has medium heat and a full-bodied flavor characteristic of Peruvian cuisine.
Aji amarillo chiles are the heart of Peruvian cuisine, forming the flavor trifecta alongside garlic and onion. Yellow to orange in color, depending on maturity, this vegetable brings not just heat and flavor to a dish, but bright color and visual appeal. Originating in South America over 7,000 years ago, this pepper is hardly popular outside of Southern and Latin American cuisine and is just now gaining recognition in The United States, Canada and India.
Use anywhere heat with fruit undertones is desired. Excellent used in stews, dusted onto meats, incorporated into sauces and blended into any southwestern dish. Great in combination with meat, poultry, fish and vegetables, and as seasoning for nuts!
