Hot Aji Salsa

spicy, traditional Chile salsa



  1. Sauté the chiles, onion and garlic in a tablespoon of the oil until soft.
  2. Place in a blender or food processor along with the peanuts, crackers, cheese, milk and cilantro and puree until smooth.
  3. Add the lemon juice and, with the machine running, add the oil a little at a time until the sauce is the desired consistency.
  4. Heat before serving, and store any extra in the refrigerator.
  5. Note: Using saltine crackers to thicken a sauce is unusual but not uncommon in Peru.
