Peruvian food has gained world-wide appeal, thanks to its fresh and unique flavors. Peruvian food is fun to prepare, and most of this menu can be made ahead of time. One ingredient that you will need for authentic flavor is aji amarillo
, a pretty bright orange chili pepper that is essential to many Peruvian recipes. You can find aji amarillo frozen and jarred at many Latin markets, or even order it online. Small jars of aji amarillo paste make great party favors - your guests can go home afterwards and cook more Peruvian food!
