This morning I went out to our little garden to find my jalapeño plants (trees) were full of jalapeños, so instead of making a ton of salsa we can’t possibly finish I decided to make pesto. This would be great over a baked chicken breast or maybe a pork chop or really anything.

Place jalapeños,garlic,Parmesan, pecans and salt into food processor. Turn it to the on position and then drizzle the olive oil in. Heck your done!

1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of filling per tortilla. When your pan is full pour hatch green chili sauce over the top and bake for approximately 30 minutes.


Top with tortilla chips, pic de Gallo

I blacken my jalapeños over the flame on my gas cook top, you can do the same thing in the broiler or you don’t have to blacken if if you don’t wish to. I think it mellows the jalapeño out just a little. Then remove the stems, place in food processor with garlic,onion, and cilantro. Process till well combined. Then add canned tomatoes and salt. Then I will pulse the food processor as we like our salsa chunky. If you like it smooth go ahead and go to town. Serve with your favorite chip. I make a big batch every week as we eat it on everything.

Mix all ingredients and pour into a ziplock bag add your cleaned dove and marinated overnight.

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate 30 min. Serve with chips or with anything you would add salsa to.
