Calabrian Chili Pesto




Calabrian chilis add a fair amount of heat and smokiness when added to a dish, if they are too hot for you then add less and balance it out with regular red peppers. This condiment is great on fish, chicken, steak, roasted vegetables or simply tossed with pasta. You can elevate just about anything, it's delicious!


What you need:

3/4 cup roasted red peppers

1/4 cup calabrian chilis

2 cloves garlic

1/4 olive oil

1/4 cup pine nuts

1/2 cup packed basil

salt and pepper


First temper the garlic in a sauce pan with the olive oil over low heat for about 5 minutes. I don't like raw garlic, so I do this all the time. Then combine the garlic and olive oil with all of the other ingredients in a blender or food processor. Give it all a good rough chop and voila! Enjoy : )
