Step into any kitchen in Peru and you’re guaranteed to find the aji panca chile in various forms: grilled and smoked, mashed into paste, milled into powder, infused with oil, and blended into numerous sauces. Essentially, it goes into everything.
The aji panca puts on its crotch-hugging skinny jeans and takes on the flavor of blueberries, blackberries, and purple cabbage. This is the pepper that wants to find its way into soups, salads, smoothies and desserts. Try adding a pinch to chocolate ice cream or a blueberry-banana smoothie.
