The spicy green aji sauce from Inka Mama's. This sauce is commonly served with bread as an appetizer, and goes well with almost any Peruvian dish. It is fantastic over rice. Add or remove peppers as needed for your taste. Before removing peppers, remove the seeds and ribs from existing peppers. When adding more olive oil, add no more than 1 teaspoon at a time and wait 30 to 45 seconds between adding more.

This is very close if not equal to Inca Mama's. I halved the recipe on my own and added a tablespoon of cilantro prior to blending because I love cilantro. Delicious!! Read More

Exactly like my favorite Peruvian restaurant my wife was thoroughly wowed and I can't stop sneaking a teaspoon whenever I sneak past the kitchen! Went very well with the Peruvian Cilantro Chicken recipe which is also available online here. Next time I'm planning to add some cilantro and to only use one quarter to one half of the quantity.

This was fantastic! Tastes exactly like the sauce they serve at our fave Peruvian restaurant. I added a few more cloves of garlic for a bolder taste. Will make this again! Thanks for sharing! Read More
