Spicy Almond Pesto Sauce

Pesto sauce is a traditional recipe, but we love to play with variations of the sauce, introducing spicy chili peppers and trying different nuts. This particular variation focuses on the jalapeno pepper and the almond. The combination is quite delicious, and offers perfect compliments to pasta and seafood dishes. Enjoy.

Spicy Almond Pesto Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, diced
  • ½ cup almonds
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup olive oil + 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 6-8 large fresh basil leaves, chopped

Cooking Directions

  • Heat a sauté pan to medium heat and add almonds along with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Cook about 5 minutes, or until nuts just begin to brown.
  • Add jalapeno peppers and onion, and cook about 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer mixture to a food processor.
  • Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture is chunky. You can easily add more oil to thin out the mixture to your liking.
