Ají amarillo is an orange-gold chili pepper from Peru, known for its fruity-floral flavor and intense heat (up to 20 times hotter than the jalapeño). It's hard to find on the international market, so we were excited to discover that Paqu Jaya sells these dried chili flakes. They're so fresh that just upon opening the jar, you'll be able to smell the peppers' aroma, and they retain a vibrant golden color—it's the closest you'll get to fresh amarillo peppers. The chili flakes are fruity and bright with a savory, spicy finish; they have a good amount of heat but aren't too fiery, so you can savor their botanical depth. For a distinctive amarillo flavor anytime you want it, this ground chili is a great shelf-stable ingredient to keep in your pantry.
