I love this sauce and use it on Manchester-Farms Beef or Organic Chicken!

I also sometimes substitute parsley for the cilantro

Mash these 2 together ingredients in a mortar and Pestle to form a paste.

  • 1 Cup of cilantro coarsely chopped

Place all ingredients into Blender. Blend until smooth

Serve with your choice of meat or chicken.
