Aji Amarillo Powder
Aji Amarillo simply means yellow chile pepper in Spanish. But don’t let the plain name mislead you, this chile is rather rare in the states. It is a staple of Peruvian cuisine, being a native of Peru and the Andes mountains of South America.
This is a fairly warm chile powder (up to 10,000 Scoville Units), with a uniquely fruity flavor. The color is a deep yellow orange, but usually becomes more yellow when cooked.
