Aji Verde Sauce

400g Prep Time 3 minutes   Rated:

Aji sauce originates from South America, particularly Peru and other Andean countries. It's made from a variety of hot chiles called aji amarillo, (fresh out of stock here in Perth) blended with lime juice, garlic, and sometimes coriander/cilantro, offering a spicy and tangy flavor profile. Traditionally used as a condiment for various dishes like ceviche and grilled meats, it has gained popularity worldwide for its unique taste and is just perfect for the bean and kale tacos I made the other night which turned out so well, they are ending up on here too!

This sauce is SO good. I can eat it with a spoon and may have. It makes a decent amount and although I am sure it will last a while in the fridge, it probably won't last long in my fridge, it is too yummy.

Using our own cheese to make it was a bit of fun. If you didn't make the Thermomix Pepper Jack Cheese yet, by all means sub in some other medium soft cheese, but you will be missing out on flavour.

Try this sauce with any or all of the following:

Mexican Meatball Soup

Mexican Egg Breakfast

White Fish Ceviche

Sweet Lip Coconut Cerviché

Fish Tacos

Low Carb Thermomix Chicken Enchiladas

Vegetarian Enchiladas with Black Beans
