AJI PANCA POWDER - Kosher/Gluten Free



This Aji Panca chile has medium thick flesh and a smoky berry flavor giving it a very aromatic taste. Aji (ah hee) is simply the Peruvian or South American term for chile pepper. Aji Panca is the second most common Aji variety in Peru and is grown mainly near the coast. Aji Panca measures approximately 500 Scoville Heat Units, giving it a mild but persistent heat. The pods are about 3 to 5 inches long and reddish-brown in color. The berry-like flavor goes well in stews and sauces and with fish and rice dishes.
