I wish that I could say that this is the perfect movie snack but to do so would be limiting it. This became my walking-through-the-kitchen snack and my driving-to-Colorado-Springs snack and my sitting-around-at-work snack.It's sweet and crunchy, just barely salty and overall pretty perfect. I added pepitas because I had them on hand but really anything that would taste good covered in caramel will work too.

Semantics aside, I love pesto. I love that cilantro is delicious to me and only fifty cents a bunch whereas that much basil would probably cost me my rent money. Not to mention the truly expensive factor in the equation, the pine nuts. I used pecans in this instead because A)I save a little money, B)I had them on hand, and C)they are pretty sweet so they contrast well with the bitter cilantro. Since making this delicious concoction I have been using it for everything. I add it to my eggs, I use it as a pizza sauce or pasta sauce, I've been adding it to black beans, and practically anything with Mexican flair could use some cilantro pesto.
