Tarí Crema de Ají

Tarí Crema de Ají, an earthy, creamy, and slightly spicy commercially made version, has become mine while I'm away from Peru and studying in the States. Added to everything from sandwiches to scrambled eggs, its flavors—aji amarillo (yellow chile peppers), onions, garlic—for a moment at least take me home.
