How to Make Pebre from Chile

©Try The World

Pebre is a type of salsa from Chile that is made with cilantro (also known as coriander), onion, olive oil, garlic, and chili peppers. This Chilean pebre recipe uses fresh tomatoes, so you can make as spicy as your choosing. In Chile, pebre is eaten on top of fresh bread with butter. It’s also a great side with Lomo a lo Pobre from the Chile Culture Guide too.
