Cilantro Pesto with a kick!

October 15, 2016

This is a wonderful pesto paired with fajita's or on top of fish tacos. Hopefully I'll get a better picture up soon. 



3 cups cilantro leaves and a few stems only – smaller ones

3/4 C pine nuts

½ C grated pecorino romano or parmesan cheese

3 garlic cloves

1 Serrano chili pepper – seeds and stem removed

¾ cup olive oil

2.5 T lemon juice

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

½  t 7-Fire Smoked Sea Salt (from Hepp's Salt) 


Put the pine nuts in a food processor (or a blender) and process until they’re broken up into small bits.  Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.


It's as easy as that! Enjoy!
