Peppers have been cultivated in Peru for 1000s of years. They find their way into all aspects of Andean cooking. From the mild, flavorful aji amarillo to the smoky, gentle heat of aji panca. Aji rocoto, known as "uchu" in Quechua, differs from these peppers in a key way - these peppers are hot - 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville units. If you are looking to recreate the fiery red salsa, Crema de Rocoto, that commonly appears on Peruvian tables, especially with roast chicken (pollo a la brasa), Goya's Red Hot Pepper Paste is the key. Add some spice to stews and sauces. This paste will also help to recreate dishes like lomo saltado, papas doradas and anticuchos. A handy paste to have in the kitchen as it can replace the flavor of fresh hot chili peppers in dishes.

How We Ship

FreshWave Packaging

Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality. 

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.

Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
