"Aji" means chile pepper in Spanish, and "amarillo" means yellow. These are called “yellow chile peppers” as the yellow color appears when cooked, as they mature the Aji Amarillo chile pods turn a deep orange color. The Aji Amarillo chile has a raisiny aroma and offers a lot of fruitiness for its heat. The fruity flavor has hints of mango and passion fruit while the fruitiness is different from other chiles, such as anchos, as it is less sharp, but with more of a subtle full body. Considered a true Latin American chile it's well worth seeking out the Aji Amarillo as its unique flavor is nothing like the better known Mexican and Caribbean chiles.
