Yellow pepper, It’s hard to overstate the importance of ají amarillo, also known as ají escabeche, in the Peruvian kitchen. Gastón Acurio called it the most important ingredient in Peruvian cooking. Virgilio Martinez — a Michelin-star chef and a protégé and fellow countryman of Acurio — called ají amarillo “the DNA of Peruvian cuisine.”

With its sweet and not overpowering heat, ají amarillo is the key ingredient in Peruvian classics such as causa rellena, ají de gallina, escabeche, cau cau and papa a la huancaína. Young ají amarillo peppers are green, turning yellow and then orange once they mature, at which stage they are ready to use.
