Colombian Aji
From: Sharon

Hot, spicy, fresh, and flavorful! I have been told this is on every Columbian table! Best made a little ahead to give time for flavors to mix thoroughly. Adapted from Allrecipes.

2 cups

  • 10 jalapeno peppers, seeded (or other hot peppers)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt

In a blender, combine the jalapenos, water, vinegar, lemon juice, green onions, cilantro and salt.

Blend until smooth.

Place in refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes to allow time for flavors to mix.

Serve with vegetables, breads, etc. Enjoy!
