AJI MOLIDO CHILE PASTE YELLOW
- 1Rinse chicken well, inside out, cut off excess fat, tuck the wings to back of chicken.
- 2Mix all ingredients and make a soft paste, if necessary add some water. Rub the chickens with mixture inside and out, making sure you covered all parts of the chickens. Let stand in refrigerator for six hours before you start arraging them in the rotisserie bar of your grill.
- 3WHEN READY TO COOK:.
- 4Do not use any type of wood smoker when you do Pollo a la Brasa (Rotisserie Chicken).
- 5You can introduce some real wood charcoals to your gas grill so it gives the charcoal flavor but NOT a smoky flavor. Even if your Grill is a Gas grill(charcoals will not last long, and will become ashes). It will take in a semi-open grill about 1 hour to 1 1/4 of an hour at medium heat (180 - 200 degrees F.) on an open Grill will take a little longer and temperature must be between 200 - 240 degrees F. Chicken should be about 12 inches away from fire at least.
- 6HUACATAY CHILI (AJI DE HUACATAY).
- 7Roast the mirasol chili whole, cut in half and remove the pips and fibers; wash and grind with the well-washed huacatay leaves and saltwort until a smooth paste results.
- 8Season with salt and a little oil and beat well. The sauce is then ready to serve-with potatoes, maize ears or boiled meat.
- 9AJI MOLIDO CHILE PASTE YELLOW.
- 10Remove seeds and stems. Combine all ingredient in a food processor and puree to a fine paste. This is a HOT condiment. This South American chile paste can be used as a substitute whenever fresh chiles are called for. It will keep for two weeks or more in the refrigerator. For longer storage, increase the vinegar and reduce the amount of olive oil.
