Green Peruvian Dipping Sauce

Green Peruvian Dipping Sauce

This green Peruvian dipping sauce is amazing!! I was making a Peruvian roasted chicken for dinner recently and it was served with a green Peruvian dipping sauce from a recipe on Serious Eats. Sadly, I couldn’t find the aji Amarillo paste, after searching in three different stores, so I just added a bit more jalapeno as the recipe suggested. This green dipping sauce is so tasty!! It’s spicy, creamy, tangy, and filled with lots of cilantro and garlic flavor. My husband, daughter and I really loved this spicy green sauce!! My son thinks it has great flavor but that it’s a bit too spicy. I’m looking forward to trying the remaining sauce on other meats, seafood, tacos, etc.
