Grind peanuts and few green chillies, add a bunch of cilantro (along with some of it's stems), salt, lime juice and litte sugar and little water. Grind it to a nice paste, to spread on bread in sandwiches, or use it as a dip with chips or samosas (indian dish). One can also add few mint leaves for more flavor. Store the paste in the freezer, and thaw it whenever needed. It lasts about a month, the top layer may get oxidized, but it is still good to eat.

In response to Jen...If you find it expensive, grow it in your window!! A small plan can grow a lot! During my apartment life, I always grew my own herbs. It was the best plus the aroma was lovely! Now I have a small array of pots on my front porch of various herbs.

HATE it! It makes my tounge go numb, and everything tastes pungent. It's horrible.
