I personally don't care for spicy foods but my husband loves them. This sounds perfect for him. Thank you so much.

These spicy kebabs are enjoyed day and night in Peruvian restaurants and at the pushcarts of street vendors. If you live in an area with a large Peruvian community, you may be able to buy whole or ground aji amarillo. If not, use hot paprika in its place.
