Cilantro Pesto

This is a great basic pesto recipe.  This same recipe can be used to make a great basil or parsley pesto, just replace the cilantro with whatever you have on hand.


  • 1 1/2 to 2 Cups Cilantro
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 Cup Almonds
  • 1/2 tsp Jalepeno pepper (or few shakes red pepper flakes)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup Olive oil


  1. Pulse everything together except the oil in the food processor.
  2. Add in the oil and continue processing until smooth.

Note: (If making in a less-than-top-notch blender, chop all the ingredients pretty fine first before blending together.)
