Aji Sauce

Aji Sauce

Aji sauce is on every Ecuadorian Restaurant’s table and on probably every Ecuadorian’s table. It is always on my table, because Leo and I love hot food. It is made in so many ways. Every restaurant’s aji is different. I have looked at what is in the ones I like and tried to recreate it. I like the one I came up with.


Put all of the these ingredients in a bowl and let sit a while and put it on rice or with the meat.

1/2 carrot diced small

1 onion diced small

1/2-1 tomato diced small

2 jalapeno peppers or any other kind of hot pepper diced small (I have even used the ones in a jar) **Note: seeds give the most heat, so use them or not depending on how hot you want it.

l lime-juiced

1/4 c water

2 T. of vinegar

1 t. or so of cilantro

1 t. salt

Taste and adjust ingredients to taste. Enjoy!
