These spicy beef 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, as we did in testing the recipe. We also tried Spanish smoked paprika, which you can find at www.tienda.com.
