i tried a new recipe last night for some delicious pizza. i marinated and pan seared chicken, made the pesto , cut all the veggies... all by myself. which doesn't make me sound that amazing- but considering that i hardly ever cook and when i do i make jarman do most of the work, it was a major feat. the sauce for the pizza is a jalapeño lime pesto, and i cannot stop eating it. i made a second batch today and put it on a chicken wrap with fresh corn, black beans, tomatoes, and leftover chicken (basically a wrap version of the pizza from last night). tomorrow i am planning to make a pasta salad with the pesto as the dressing. we have even been dipping tortilla chips in it. it's just that delicious.
here is the recipe for the pesto, you should go make it this second and put it on anything edible, you won't regret it.
Spicy Cilantro Lime Pesto
• 1 bunch of fresh cilantro
• 2 1/2 Tbspn toasted walnuts (i used raw pine nuts)
• 1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil
• 5 garlic cloves
• zest of 2 limes
• juice of 2 limes
• 1 jalapeño seeded (leaving seeds in will make it hotter)
• 1/4 Cup grated parmesan cheese
Combine all ingredients into blender, pulse until smooth consistency.
