Cookbook | Recipes | Ingredients | Vegetable

Ají dulce (from South American Spanish ají, "chilli" + dulce, "sweet") is any of a variety of sweet perennial peppers found in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is most widely known in Venezuela where it refers to a specific native variety of Capsicum chinense related to the habanero, but with a mild, smoky flavour.

In Puerto Rico, the ají dulce is grown commercially and is an important ingredient for sauces, such as sofrito or "mojito isleño" (a fish or meat sauce).
