A staple in Peruvian cuisines, the Aji Amarillo pepper is native to South America. Also known as the yellow chili pepper, its color changes to a bright orange as it matures. The Peruvian yellow pepper is a bright orange, thick-fleshed pepper that bursts with flavor. The peppers have a thick skin, are 4 to 5 inches long, and has a unique fruity flavor. Its flavor consists of passion fruit and mango, with a bit of heat. It’s most common in Peruvian culture where it is used as a paste, called the Aji Amarillo paste, but can be found and used in a handful of Spanish dishes! You can’t go wrong adding this pepper in any dish, because the chili is great for sauces, salsas, powders, salads, and more. It is a delicious, flavorful pepper that is very versatile to use.
