Peruvian Green Chilli Sauce

I am a great lover of chillies. Consequently, I always have at least a few different kinds of hot sauce on the go for the various meals I make. This week I managed to get hold of some Ají Amarillo Paste online and decided to make this Peruvian Green Sauce. It’s really quite excellent – fresh, herby and zingy. Delicious. Do give it a go!

Peruvian Green Sauce (makes 2 x 250ml bottles)


4 jalapeños

2 finger chillies

1 large bunch of coriander

1/2 cup of basil leaves

2 tbsp ginger and garlic paste or use fresh

4 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp rapeseed oil

6 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 cup mayonnaise

2 1/2 tbsp Ají Amarillo Paste (like the one pictured below)


  1. Put all ingredients except the mayonnaise in a food processor and blitz until smooth.
  2. Add in the mayonnaise and combine.
  3. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Store in air tight containers in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy!

Hope that you enjoy this sauce. Please feel free to leave any questions or comments. 😊
