Aji Panca Pepper Paste - 8oz

Country of Origin: Peru
Region: Topara Valley

Aji, or chile peppers, are native to Peru, and the country boasts many distinct indigenous varieties that are used as a base for most of Peruvian traditional cooking. The aji paste is made from fresh, pureed aji.

Aji Panca is one of the most common types of aji in Peru. The peppers are 3 to 5 inches in length and have a thick flesh that matures from a light green to dark red color. The panca is distinct from the other ajis with its mild heat and fruity, berry-like flavor that goes well in stews, sauces and fish dishes.
