Spicy Aji Sauce {Haute Dogs Quirk Book}

Spicy Aji Sauce

"Aji is a popular South American sauce with origins in Peru. It is deliciously sweet and mild" -Haute Dogs The sauce is incredibly quick to make and abounds with natural flavor. I've found many uses for it beyond the hot dog (on which it is delicious); on eggs, in lettuce wraps and more.

  • 4 green chilies , such as jalapenos*
  • 3 green onions , white and light green parts only, chopped
  • 1/2 small white onion , chopped
  • Leaves from 1 small bunch cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth.

*The seeds from chile pepper are responsible for much of their heat. Though the recipes does not call for deseeding, I did deseed the jalapenos and found the Aji Sauce to still be spicy.
