*I became familiar with these pepper
pastes, when I worked at a Costco road
show. They are so handy to add a little zip to any recipe. They are
from Peru, with new and different peppers, this one has the Panca pepper.
They are sometimes available in higher end grocery stores, you can use any
chili paste that you like.
