Aji Panca Seco

Aji Panca: A Sweet and Smoky Pepper

The Aji Panca is a widely used pepper in Peruvian cuisine known for its sweetness and smoky flavor. Despite being classified as a chili pepper, it has a mild heat level, ranging from 1,000 to 1,500 Scoville Heat Units (SHU) – similar to a mild jalapeño.

This characteristic makes Aji Panca a versatile ingredient, perfect for adding depth and complexity to various dishes without overpowering them with spice. It's commonly used in:

  • Marinades: Aji Panca's smoky sweetness pairs well with beef, chicken, and other meats, infusing them with rich flavor.
  • Sauces: This pepper is a key ingredient in many Peruvian sauces, like Aji Amarillo sauce, adding a subtle smokiness and depth of flavor.
  • Stews: Aji Panca can be used to enhance stews and braises, contributing its unique smoky and sweet notes.
