Basic pesto not only works on pasta, as a condiment it can take a burger, sandwich or bruschetta to another level. But why settle for basic, why not add some pizzazz with a tang of chili or hatch peppers.
Place basil, peppers, garlic and sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor. Pulse so that the pesto appears like a mix of chopped ingredients. Stir in olive oil, salt and pepper
