One of Peru's most popular chillies, the Aji Panca delivers a flavour profile that is unique and intriguing, that all chilli lovers should try - smoky, mildly spicy, with berry undertones!
The Aji Panca is a truly intriguing chilli and the second most popular chilli used in Peruvian cuisine. It is very mild at just 500-1000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), and has a very unique and complex flavour profile, smoky but fruity in flavour, with some thinking it tastes like blueberries.
It is generally dried and powdered, or turned into a paste, but can also be used in its raw state.
