Cilantro Pesto


2 Bunches of cilantro rough chop including stems except for hard tough ends
3-4 Cloves garlic rough chop
3-4 Slices of onion rough chop
Juice of 1 Lime or lemon
Small handful pepita seeds
Chili Powder
Sea Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil and Water to thin a bit

Add all ingredients to a food processor and puree until well combined.

This sauce is so versatile. You can dip chips in it, marinate chicken, shrimp or pork in it, serve on tacos, burritos, or tostadas. Lower fat than using guacamole on your Mexican dishes and just as tasty if not more!


This tasty recipe is being show over at Bobbi’s Cozy Kitchen Manic Monday Party!
