Pebre is a Chilean condiment made of coriander, chopped onion, olive oil, garlic and ground or pureed spicy aji peppers. If you add chopped tomatoes it is called chancho en piedra.

Ajilimójili is a hot sauce or hot and sweet sauce from Puerto Rico, traditionally served over grilled seafood, vegetables, boiled tuber vegetables and especially grilled meats. The sauce is a combination of olive oil, garlic, coriander or culantro, hot peppers, pepper, vinegar or citrus juice, all finely chopped or blended, simmered and cooled to serve.
It’s up to you how hot this salsa will be: you can follow the recipe word for word, or make it milder, by substituting the Aji Amarillo with capsicums. Make it colourful so it is visually appealing and keep the onion crunchy to fully enjoy its texture and awaken all your senses
