Fabulous! Thought maybe the jalapeño might be too spicy or take over but it was actually perfect. This was my first time making pesto without pinenuts. I will do it again. Great recipe Curiouschef. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent recipe! My dishes usually aren't spicy enough for me but this one is perfect! I used one whole large jalapeno from my garden.I think I'm going to put it on a flatbread with tomato and shaved parm.

This was really really good. I used a mixture of parmesan and asiago cheese and didn't add as much oil, and it turned out great!
