Aji Mirasol Seco, also called Aji Amarillo Seco, which means Dried Yellow Chilli or Dried Yellow Hot Pepper is a sun-dried chilli pepper with a unique flavour and intensity. It’s less floral and citric than fresh chilli peppers, and has a more complex and concentrated taste. The best thing about it is that the drying process makes it lightweight and gives it a long shelf life, keeping its piquancy for many long months. Before using, this hot pepper needs to be seeded and deveined, toasted, and then rehydrated in hot water and blanched three times, changing the water each time, to reduce its heat. It is used in a wide range of Peruvian dishes and sometimes referred as "Inca's food". This ingredient gives a wonderful earthy flavour to soups and stews such as "capchi" (a stew made with potatoes, cheese, milk, and herbs), or "ocopa", among many others. Some people also deep-fry the whole chilli until golden, and serve it over beans or other dishes like "tacu tacu" or "chupes" (Andean chowders), eating them with seeds and all. You may be surprised by how much you like the fried, crunchy, spicy combination. It is a very strong pepper. You won't regret trying it!
