Prep time
Total time
Green chimichurri is the sauce we hear of most, but the lesser known red version is even more flavorful. This particular recipe is inspired by the spicy flavors of Brazil.
Serves: 12 servings (2 tablespoons each)
  • 1 red bell pepper, stemmed and cut into large pieces
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped onion
  • ½ cup packed cilantro leaves (can sub parsley, if preferred)
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh garlic (about 2 cloves)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  1. Place all of the ingredients in your food processor or blender, and process or pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Pour the sauce into an airtight container, and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes before serving. This gives the flavors some time to meld.
