Aji Amarillo Spiced Sweet Potato Wedges + RawSpiceBar Giveaway!

RawSpiceBar Aji Amarillo Spiced Sweet Potato Wedges + Giveaway

I don’t know about you but my spice cabinet has become like the junk drawer of my cupboards.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I cleaned it out and over the years it has gathered spice jar after spice jar- most of which have probably expired and lost any flavor they once had.  

So when I was contacted by RawSpiceBar and asked to try out their fresh ground, small batch, premium spice blends I was really excited! Instead of jars, these fresh ground spices are sent in the perfect size small batch packets that are just the right amount for creating delicious recipes.

For only $6.00 each month (that you can cancel at any time) you can get a Subscription Spice Box with 3-4 hand picked, small batch fresh ground spices delivered to your door along with locally inspired recipes to accompany them.  Each spice packet is about 1-3 ounces which can create a dish to serve 8-10 people!

This past month I was sent spices inspired by the Andes and Peru along with recipe cards to create a menu for Peruvian Roasted Chicken, Aji Amarillo Sweet Potatoes and Pink Peppercorn Voladores.

Here are the spices I received as well as suggested pairings for each:

Peruvian Spice Rub

RawSpiceBar Giveaway

A blend of paprika, ancho chiles, cumin, ground black pepper and Mexican Oregano.  Pairs well with sausages, chicken, shrimp, tofu or eggplant.

Pink Peppercorn Blend

RawSpiceBar Giveaway

Blend of  pink Himalayan sea salt and pink peppercorns.  Pairs well with sweet dishes like ice cream, melons or chocolate and savory dishes like scallops, shrimp or salmon. 

Aji Amarillo Spices

RawSpiceBar Giveaway

Blend of aji amarillo, coriander, basil, mustard seed, cumin and black pepper.  Pair well with potatoes and rice. 

As soon as I read the suggestion of making sweet potatoes with the aji amarillo spices, my mouth started to water.  I wasted no time whipping up these wedges that were a match made in heaven with the blend of aji amarillo chiles.  

Aji Amarillo Spiced Sweet Potatoes

These literally are as mouthwatering as they look.  The flavors from the chile adds not only spice but also a hint of fruitiness that brings out the sweet in sweet potatoes.
