Cilantro Jalapeno Pesto

This spicy pesto can be used as a sauce, spread, dip, or marinade. We are sure that there are myriad uses for this, but we like it on zucchini noodles or as a dip. Try it out and let us know how you like it.

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Total Time: 5m


  • 1/2 c raw almonds, chopped
  • 1 large bunch cilantro, large stems removed
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 c olive oil (plus more if necessary)


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except the olive oil, into a food processor and blend. While it is blending, slowly add the olive oil.
  2. Add more or less olive oil to achieve your desired pesto consistency.
