Guava Mango Ají Amarillo Sauce

An easy-to-make Brazilian sauce that's great with any meat or fish dishes

Fruity mango and guava bring a tropical sweetness to this sauce, while spicy-hot ají amarillo (a traditional South American chile paste) and cumin make for a show-stopping finish. Perfect for chicken, seafood and skewered pork and steak. Fire + meat + sauce. Grill on.
