Ají amarillo is the name for both an indigenous Peruvian chili pepper and the hot sauce it's made into. This medium-hot version of the famous condiment is delicately balanced between sweet, spicy and earthy flavors. The chili itself tastes fruity, floral and slightly vegetal, with an intense yet fleeting heat. To make this vibrant sauce, the peppers are cooked with mangos and oranges, emphasizing the chili's fruity notes while adding natural sweetness. Since amarillo chilies are rarely sold fresh in the United States, this hot sauce's concentrated flavor makes it perfect for incorporating Peruvian flavor into your everyday meals, and thanks to its thick consistency—think Sriracha, not Tabasco—just a little goes a long way.
