The classic traditional sauce from Argentina, combining Parsley, Oregano, Olive Oil, Garlic and Red Wine Vinegar. It’s a beautiful, fresh sauce which pairs exceptionally well with roasted Meat. Steak in particular loves this sauce. This recipe is for our Spicy Chimichurri Sauce, where we ramp up the recipe with spice care of some beautiful Jalapeno Peppers

If you’re a little bit unsure how spicy you want the sauce, there’s a really easy way to manage the spice levels. Best suggestion for our Spicy Chimichurri Sauce is to start with just a little bit of heat, and adjust later. The sauce is one of the easiest to make, as you simply combine all the ingredients into a blender and, well, blend it! So, add a little bit of heat initially, taste it and adjust accordingly

The Best Chimichurri Sauce is one that’s full of Spice!

The main heat contributor is the seeds within the Jalapenos, so use them sparingly at the start! The sweet spot for our spice levels was to use about ¼ of the seeds. That will still give you quite a kick, but not completely overwhelm the other ingredients in the sauce. Garlic will also give you a bit of a kick too so they pair well with the Jalapenos

This Spicy Chimichurri Sauce goes so well with Steak. The richness of the steak balances so well with a fresh Chimichurri. It’s a classic combination for a reason – it tastes phenomenal!

Spicy Chimichurri Sauce Recipe


  • 1 cup Fresh Parsley
  • ½ cup Fresh Oregano (Alternatively 2 tsp. of Dried Oregano)
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, peeled
  • 1 Shallot, peeled and quartered
  • 1 tsp. Red Wine Vinegar
  • ⅓ cup Olive Oil
  • 1 large / 2 medium Jalapenos
  • ½ Red Chili, finely sliced
  • 2 tsp. Salt


  1. Prepare all your ingredients then place them into the blender. The Jalapenos will determine how spicy you want your Chimichurri to be. If you want it to be super spicy, keep all of the seeds. Less spicy, remove the seeds
  2. Blend all the ingredients until fully combined and they form a smooth texture. Taste the Sauce and adjust where necessary. More Spice = add more Jalapeno Seeds. More Richness = add more Olive Oil. More Acidity = add more Lemon Juice
  3. Pour into a serving bowl, finish with a sprinkle of Red Chili and serve immediately, or chill for later use
