Rated 5 out of 5 by Nakahockey from Great recipe and use of the Vitamix! First use of the Vitamix! This Chimichurri recipe was delicious and easy to make with the Vitamix. The spice from the jalapeno was nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dominic1960 from Pebre, the spicy cousin of Chimichurri Pebre is the southernmost member of a family of fresh salsas that includes Colombian aji and Brazilian molho à campanha. This would be the appropriate name of this recipe. I recently found out that this version is not true Chimichurri sauce. However, I like my sauces spicy, very spicy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Estergidio from Thank you to spread the word The recipe is not accurate. The original Chimichurri from ARGENTINA does not have cilantro or jalapeño. Sometimes to make it less “oily” one can add hot water. Oh, crash pepper too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ElleC from Not chimichurri I learned how to make from Argentinian friends. Never made from Cilantro. It is made with Parsley. This would probably be good, but it needs a name of it's own, it's just not chimicurri!
