Spice up your holiday with Aji
Aji (Ecuadorian hot sauce)
Holiday Greetings from the Andean Collection team! We wanted to share one of our favorite Ecuadorian recipes to spice up your upcoming holiday meals; Aji an Ecuadorian hot sauce.
Whenever we're in Ecuador we put this sauce on anything savory. It is the best!
Also, if you need a list minute gift idea for your friends or as a hostess gift for a holiday party you can bottle this sauce in a mason jar (super cute) tie a bow around the jar and voilá!
Just add a festive bow around the mason jar for the perfect holiday gift
