Recipe Notes

Ají amarillo (yellow pepper) paste is usually produced in Peru or neighboring countries. You can purchase it in Latin food markets, or here on Amazon.com.

If you are hesitant to try spicy foods, start out with 1 Tbsp. of ají amarillo paste; taste, and add more – if you can handle the heat!

This is usually made with just fresh mayonnaise. However, I find adding sour cream or yogurt makes it more creamy and light. I especially like Stonyfield Farm‘s whole milk plain yogurt in this recipe.
