"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.
3green onions, white and light green parts only, chopped
1/2small white onion, chopped
Leavesfrom 1 small bunch cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
1/2teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
*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.Recipe excerpted from Haute Dogs with permission from Quirk Books.
