Aji panca is one of the most common types of native peppers in Peru. While other members of the Aji pepper family are fairly spicy, aji panca stands out for its mild taste and fruity, berry-like flavor.
In paste form, this mild, dark-red chili is often used in stews and fish dishes. Use it as a marinade for any type of meat. Not too spicy, aji panca paste makes an excellent base for a wide variety of recipes when combined with sautéed onions, garlic and herbs.
Zocalo Gourmet offers this organic aji panca paste made with fresh red peppers picked at their peak ripeness, puréed and packed quickly to protect their full flavor. All Zocalo Gourmet products are produced at Topara Organica, an organic farm that, since 1968, has promoted the cultivation of native species, the vibrancy of local communities and the protection of the environment.
