Ingredients
Instructions

  2. Add jalapeno peppers and cilantro. Pulse blender until desired consistency.
  3. Using a spatula, transfer pesto to a medium size serving dish.
Recipe Notes

Consistency can be modified by adding or removing greens/olive oil, and or nuts. Grated cheese is sometimes added to this. Any green and/or nut can be substituted.

Serve as a side or over meats or salads. This is very versatile. The oiliness makes dryer meats such as chicken breast and wild pork/venison, much more fun to eat.
