Salsa de Aji y Cebolla China (hot peppers and green onions sauce)

This is a mild hot sauce that blends very well with pollo a la brasa (rotisserie chicken) and fries.


  • 1 cup of aji amarillo paste (Peruvian yellow chili paste). You could also use rocoto paste if you want it more spicy or it could be replaced with 8 seeded jalapeno peppers.
  • 1 bunch of green onions chopped into 1 cm. (approximately 1/2 inch) pieces
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil


Put the paste, chopped green onions, oil and salt a small bowl and mix.

If you are using jalapeno peppers cut them in slices and put them in a blender. Add the oil and salt and puree until smooth. Transfer the puree to a small bowl. Add the green onions and mix.
