Aji Limo peppers, or Limo chile, is a medium to hot chile pepper from Peru. It commonly has a Scoville Heat Rating of 30,000-50,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Aji Limo peppers have a very fruity citrus flavor and work well in Central and South American cuisines. The taste is very similar to Scotch Bonnet peppers but with less heat. It is one of the Peruvian trinity family of peppers along with Aji Amarillo and Rocoto peppers. In Peru, the pepper is commonly made into a versatile paste and then the paste is worked into any number of dishes.
The Aji Limo pepper is commonly used to make salsa, ceviche, street tacos, chili, and pairs well with chicken and fish. Makes a great pizza and pasta topping for those looking to add delicious heat.

Disclaimer: Our flakes are sold by weight as they are a commodity. Since they are pure we do not add fillers so how it looks in the bottle may be different than what is shown in the pictures as the density changes with each crop. FDA-approved plastic bottles are only manufactured to specific sizes (i.e. 8 fl oz, 16 fl oz, 32 fl oz) so changing the bottle size for each crop is not possible to always make it look entirely full for every crop.
