Adapted from Planet Barbecue. Llajua is an extremely hot Bolivian salsa. It is normally made with locoto (rocoto) peppers, but if you can't find them, feel free to use Scotch bonnets or jalapenos, depending on your heat tolerance. Bolivians claim that the peppers need to be cut exactly as described in the recipe, or the flavor will be different. Leave the seeds in if you want it even hotter. Prep time includes marinating time. The salsa may be made up to 2 hours in advance. Note: this recipe is best made with bone-in chicken breasts. If you use boneless, reduce cooking time accordingly.
