Since “Amarillo” is the Spanish word for yellow, and “Ají” is the term for chile in South America, this pepper is also appropriately known as the “yellow chile.” The Ají Amarillo is grown in all areas of Peru. Used by the Incas, it is still the most common and popular chile in that country.

Serving Suggestions: Spice up a marinade for any poultry or red meat. Can also be used to add a spicy touch for any dry rub.
