No. 5105 - Aji Amarillo Chile Powder

As low as $8.00
Our 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 and India.

  • Part of the capsicum-annuum family
  • "Aji Amarillo" is Spanish for yellow pepper
