Is it a sauce, is it a marinade or is it a condiment? All of the above and this is not just any sauce, marinade or condiment.
If you tried and love the classic chimichurri, which is an amazing salsa verde, then I am happy to introduce its hot little brother chimichurri Rojo or red chimichurri.
This is a spicy sauce due to the jalapeño. I consider this a mildly hot sauce but you can make this sauce as spicy as you want.
If you do not like hot and spicy you can decide to leave the jalapeño out or to not make this recipe at all.
I suggest you start out with a small amount of spice and increase to sooth your tastes buds nothing is mandatory so give it a try.
When you use to marinate your chicken or beef steak it will become less intense and not as hot.

How to make red chimichurri

Wash a pointed red pepper with cold water. Half the pepper, stem, seed and coarsely chop it up. Put the bell pepper in a blender.
Crush the garlic in a pestle and mortar and add it into the blender. Then add all the spices, cilantro, parsley and salt into the blender as well.
Pulse the blender a couple of times until you have a fine sauce with the consistency of salsa. Perfect if you like a more rustic sauce with a lot of texture.
