Aji Amarillo chile peppers are native to Peru and are an essential ingredient in traditional Peruvian dishes. The peppers have a long history in Peruvian cuisine, dating back thousands of years to the Inca civilization. Our Aji Amarillo fine ground chili pepper powder is derived from these distinct yellow-orange peppers.

Appearance: Before processing, the Aji Amarillo chili peppers are medium-sized and have a unique bright yellow to orange color when fully ripe. They have slightly wrinkled skin and an elongated, tapered shape. The peppers are known for their vibrant appearance and add a pop of color to dishes.

Heat and Flavor: Aji Amarillo chili peppers have a moderate heat level, ranging from 30K to 50K SHUs. While they provide a noticeable kick, they are generally milder than some of the spicier chili pepper varieties. This makes Aji Amarillo fine ground chili pepper powder accessible to a wide range of taste preferences. Additionally, Aji Amarillo chili peppers offer a unique and distinct flavor profile. They have a fruity, slightly floral taste with a subtle hint of citrus. The flavor is often described as pleasantly tangy and mildly sweet. Aji Amarillo powder adds a delicious depth and complexity to dishes without overpowering the other flavors.


Spice up your dishes: Our premium grade Aji Amarillo powder is versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes. Add it to stews, soups, sauces, marinades, and salsas to infuse a warm and mildly spicy flavor.

Gradual seasoning: Start by adding a small amount of our Aji Amarillo fine ground powder to your dishes and gradually increase according to your taste preferences. This will help you achieve the desired level of spiciness without overwhelming the flavors.

Creamy sauces and dips: Aji Amarillo ground pepper powder pairs exceptionally well with creamy sauces and dips. Use it to add a mild heat and vibrant color to cheese sauces, aioli, or dips like guacamole.
