Aji Panca Chile Powder.
Aji Panca Chiles are the part of the heart of Peruvian cuisine, forming the flavor trifecta alongside garlic and onion. Red to brown in color, depending on maturity, this vegetable brings not just heat and flavor to a dish, but bright color and visual appeal. Originating in South America over 7,000 years ago, this pepper is hardly popular outside of Southern and Latin American cuisine and is just now gaining recognition in The United States and India.
Aji Panca Chile Powder keeps this classic Peruvian kebab traditional. The mild, fruity Aji Panca Chile gets a smoky char on the grill after marinating with vinegar and garlic.
