For any Colombian food you serve, always have some aji on the table. Hot, spicy, fresh, and flavorful.

I really enjoyed this. A good friend of mine is Columbian and offered this as a alternative to chimichurri. It has WAAY less fat than chimichurri and it tastes great. It is better to make it ahead of time though. That way the flavors have time to mix. I grilled a flank steak and used this on the steak after it was cooked. Thanks! Read More

I don't know what happened but I didn't care for this. The spice was perfect (subbed 5 serranos for 10 jalapenos since I had serranos on hand). I think the vinegar is what turns me off from the recipe even though there isn't much of it. I think next time I'd decrease the amount of vinegar but that's my own personal preference not the recipe's fault. Read More

This is better than the coloumbian restaurant I go to.I added minced garlic. My pepper plant froze so I didn't have any so I just used cayenne for spice. Delicious! Read More

This stuff is great on everything from chips to steak. I was worried about the excessive amount of jalapenos but it wasn't too hot. I did tone down the zing of the peppers with some Spanish onion. Read More

This was a great with grilled steak. This was a nice alternative to salsa. And I didn't need to add any salt. it already had enough flavor to it. Recipe makes more of a party batch than a family batch. Read More

OMG! This is a fantastic recipe. The sauce has the same taste as the sauce my Columbian friends make. A great tomato- less salsa if you are staying away from tomatoes this summer. Eat it with everything. Read More

My Colombian friends fell in love with this recipe. They can't get enough of it. I made one change that they liked . I use a 1-1 blend of pasilla and jalapeno peppers. Gives a bit more flavor and a bit less heat. The final product needs to be on the salty side. Read More

OMG t5his is so good!. I was very skeptical but I decided to make it for South American Pot luck. I did add about 4 cloves of garlic and subbed 1/2 of a red onion and a shallot because I didn't have green onions. kept everything else the same. It has a great bright flavor and I can't wait to bring it tomorrow. We just ate it on chips. It would be fantastic on steak or a steak taco fish or shrimp taco too. Read More
