Organic Peruvian Aji


Dear friend of Gourmet Delights,


Aji is the Caribbean word for chili and/or peppers. It is typically associated with Peruvian and Bolivian cuisine, and is often mixed together with garlic and red onions to form a paste, sauce, or marinade.


One of the most common types of aji in Peru, Aji Panca, is 3 to 5 inches in length and has a thick flesh that matures from a green to dark red in color. Distinct from the other ajis in its spiciness, Aji Panca is mild in heat intensity (a heat level of 2 on a scale of 10; 1,500 Scoville Units) and provides a fruity, berry-like flavor that goes well in stews, sauces, and fish dishes. Aji Panca is so berry-like that it can be finely chopped, or ground into a powder, and tossed into foods to add a sweet, mild heat.

  • Mix it with lime juice and whisk to drizzle over freshly sliced avocado for an afternoon snack or nice appetizer!
  • We love them in these Dark Chocolate-Panca Spiced Baked Empanadas
  • Make a paste and marinate your fish, chicken, or pork before cooking.
  • The fruity characteristics and mild heat also work great with chocolate, whether incorporated into a chocolate sauce, or baked into a cake or cookies, it will add that extra dimension and "WOW" factor!


We also carry two other aji peppers: Aji Amarillo and Aji Limo. The unique flavor of the Aji Amarillo (a heat level of 7 on a scale of 10; 50,000 Scoville units) makes it worth seeking out and incorporating into your cooking. Even though it is a "chili pepper" it has a lot of fruitiness combined with its heat. It is a very versatile chile, suitable for everyday use as it will complement your dish without overwhelming it. You definitely need to try this Spicy & Aromatic Meatball Tagine, and of course they are wonderful in Ceviche Con Tostones!


Aji Limo is spicy (a heat level of 8 on a scale of 10; 60,000 Scoville units) and is primarily used to prepare ceviche and rice dishes. It is also wonderful as a base for chicken and pasta recipes. We found a new Sunday Brunch Cocktail: Michelada with Aji Limo. HOT but so refreshing!
