    Does anybody know of a source for fresh Aji in the US?

    I just came back from Lima, and still have the taste in my mouth of fresh aji; I wish I knew were to buy it. To make Papa a la Huancaina here in Houston, I combine 3 or 4 RED jalapenos with 2 Habanero (seeded), and add some yellow aji paste.

    Remarkably, frozen ajies amarillos when thawed are almost freshlike. The flesh is firm, not mushy. This variety of peppers, frozen, is available in many Hispanic grocery stores around the US.

    I used the frozen version of this chile pepper to taste-test recipes provided by Peruvian chefs for my travel guidebook, “Eat Smart in Peru: How to Decipher the Menu, Know the Market Foods & Embark on a Tasting Adventure.” One such recipe was for Papas a la Huancaina, which was mentioned in the comment by Max on June 8th.

    From Cardiff, California

    My Peruvian friend cooked this for me years ago. I remember that she added fresh corn to the equation. It was delicious!!!!!!!

    Hola, no me gusta para nada el comentario que haces sobre Lima. En qué año estuviste alli? en los años 80?
    Para tu información en terrorismo desapareció de Lima en los 90s, hay ladrones como en toda ciudad grande y en general es una ciudad amistosa.
    No debes dejar esos comentarios ligeros sin conocer bien las ciudades que visitas.
