This variety originates from Peru. About 4 inches long, yellow then red. They are medium to hot with a distinctive citrus taste. Good in light dishes such as fish or chicken. We sell these chillies 'yellow' in the early season and red later in the year. The citrus flavour is also very nice in a fresh salsa.
Recipe1: Chop 1 Aji chilli very finely and sprinkle into a chicken stir-fry and cook-in for a few minutes.
Recipe2: Salsa - Chop 1 Aji chilli very finely and add to chopped tomatoes, chopped coriander leaves and a squeeze of lemon.
