for those of you who might have copied the '0ld' serrano pesto recipe at some point (daphne), I made it this morning and decided it needed a little up date. So here is the newly revised and hopefully better recipe. Just a warning tho, serranos are hotter than Jalapenos, so please if you don't care for hotter foods, you might want to play with jalapenos instead.




Serrano Pesto

8 medium Serrano peppers
10 medium cloves of garlic
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup basil (not a tightly packed 1/2 cup)
3 T. cilantro
1/4 tsp. sugar
5 T. grated Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup + 2 T. olive oil

Roughly chop all ingredients and put in a food processor and process just until the pesto is mixed together and finely chopped. You want some texture to the pesto.

Not quite sure it needed updating. I liked it as it was.

To me, these changes are only an attempt to spin away from a Mexican-style flavour toward an Italian-style one and belies the original nature of the dish.

Although I love the other ingredients that have been added, it was the lack of those that had attracted me to this recipe in the first place.
