Peruvian Aji Amarillo Sweet Potato Wedges recipe shared by Rebecca Myers from RawSpiceBar.
Potatoes, which originated in Peru, are the star of our side dish and are accompanied by a blend of spices plus freshly ground aji amarillo- a bright orange, fruity chile with an extremely unique flavor and a medium-high heat. Use these spices for roasted potatoes or get authentic and create Peru’s famour aji amarillo dipping sauce as well.
