Details

Aji Colorado has thin walls, which makes it excellent for drying. When dried, it’s simple to crumble the chili into soups and stews to add some extra heat (and a hint of sweetness) to a dish. They are also the perfect chili for making traditional Peruvian meals and the popular Aji Colorado sauce – a Peruvian staple. Use them fresh chopped up for salsas, or lightly grill them and have them as a side (especially for those that like things a little extra spicy). A variety from La Paz, Bolivia. Non-Isolated.
