Smokey Bell Pepper Pesto
So, this is a great alternative to the hummus I put on my sandwiches. You can also swap this out for salsa on tacos or for your organic blue corn tortilla chips!
2 large roasted red bell peppers, stem and seeds removed
1 jarred chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, seeds removed (I used canned)
1 small clove of garlic, chopped (1/4 tsp.)
2 Tbs. raw almonds, toasted
1 tsp. fresh oregano
2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil, extra if needed
Pulse bell peppers, chipotle pepper, garlic, almonds, and oregano in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Drizzle olive oil and process until combined.
