Chilean Pesto (Pebre)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

Pebre is a tangy Chilean condiment that makes a great beef marinade and an even better pasta sauce or chip dip. There are lots of variations out there, but this one is quick and simple, and accentuates the great flavors of Cilantro and Parsley.

My family is not crazy about cilantro, but I love it. So, I made this as written and served it over linguine pasta (as I would basil pesto) and everybody raved about it. It's so easy to make, that we now keep a bowl in the fridge and use it on almost everything. Thanks for sharing.
