Total Time 10 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons aji amarillo paste
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 scallions only white root end, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • Salt and pepper


  • Place all ingredients into a food processor and pulse blend until smooth.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.

You can substitute aji amarillo paste for fresh aji amarillo. Use one aji amarillo chili. Remove the seeds and chop. Sweat the chili in an oiled pan over medium heat until the chili is softened. Then pulse blend with the other ingredients.
