Cilantro pesto is another great topping to liven up leftover chili. Guacamole is one of my favorite toppings, but eat it often and wanted a different flavor combination. Cilantro pesto is a variation of regular basil pesto and is great for chili, enchiladas or even on roasted potatoes. I have a very restricted diet, due to the food sensitivities so I have to make do with what I can find that is fresh & unprocessed. Which can be so delicious, just often more time consuming. Today’s lunch, leftover chili, cilantro pesto and chopped avocado, took about 5 mins to make. I used my mini food processor for this.
1. Gather ingredients:
Bunch of fresh cilantro
About half a cup pumpkin seeds – I was out so I subbed sunflower seeds
A clove of garlic
Organic extra virgin olive oil
6. Enjoy on top of leftover chili! with some avocado for good fats
