Aji amarillo around these parts? (Westside)

Planning my meals for the week and just received a request for chicken causas.

In my previous experience cooking the dish, I believe I substituted cayenne pepper (dried) for the aji amarillo. Perfectly acceptable, but I'm curious to work with the pepper.

Does anyone know where I can get aji amarillo peppers or paste near Westwood?

        Thanks! Didn't see that thread in preliminary search. I'll keep searching. Unfortunately, none of these stores are near Westwood.

      2. Whole Foods sometimes stocks the aji amarillo paste.
