The Peruvian Aji Amarillo
Aji Amarillo, oh how I have missed thee.
The word aji in Spanish means chili pepper and amarillo means yellow. When fully ripened and ready to incorporate in to your most favorite Peruvian cusine, the aji will be orange in color. It is a staple in kitchens throughout Lima and is used in typical plates such as Aji de Gallina, Papa Huancaina, Locro de Zapallo and Lomo Saltado.
