I got this recipe from a restaurant in California 10 years ago. It's been a staple in my refrigerator ever since. It's excellent with rotisserie chicken. You can lower the calories if you stream in olive oil in replace of the mayo.

This tastes very similar to an aji sauce I find at a local Peruvian restaurant. The first time I made this was about a month ago and I've been hooked ever since! It's great on chicken rice and can even be used as a salad dressing. To achieve the preferred consistency I like to use a mixture of two-thirds mayo and one-third olive oil instead of just mayo. Thanks Dorothy! Read More

It's an amazing sauce!! It's modeled after "El Polla Inka " restraunts famous "Aji green sauce". I had to added some water to get it to blend in the blender, add just enough to get the blender to mix it. Otherwise it's too dry and the blenders blade just spins without actually mixing the ingredients. It's great on white rice, eggs, bread and especially rostarrie chicken (just like the restraunt serves! ) I live no where near one of there amazing restraunts, so I have had to only dream of there green sauce. But not now, thanks to the person who got the sauce finally right! Read More

Almost. In my opinion, this recipe needs a bit of lime juice or white vinegar to get a bit of a bite. I also thought it was better with the addition of some ground coriander and cumin Read More
