10 years ago I was the ultimate gringo. I hated corn tortillas, spicy food and cilantro. I really hated cilantro. Then we moved 20 miles from Baja, and cilantro became an unavoidable fact of life. First I learned to tolerate cilantro…then like it…then love it. (PS…I also love corn tortillas and SPICY hot food now, too. Pretty amazing transformation, eh?)
Anyway, back to cilantro. It’s yummy. And now I put it in a lot of our Mexican food…especially guacamole. And I really love it on Barbecue Chicken Pizza. Oh, and this cilantro pesto served with chili chicken skewers is pretty darn yummy too.
