Submitted by: NWILKER

Introduction

This was a cooking light recipe - but i keep changing it. This time i substituted pumpkin seeds for pine nuts simply because that was what was in my pantry!

Ingredients

    3/4 cup fresh cilantro
    2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
    1 tablespoon chopped seeded jalapeƱo pepper
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon black pepper
    1 garlic clove, chopped
    3 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt
    1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Directions

Combine all incredients in food processor.

You could use blender, but getting all the goodness out of the nooks and crannies is harder!

I use this in my chicken pesto spirals, inside steaks on the grill... just about anywhere you can use pesto, you can use this!
