It's Lilia's Chilean Pebre. According to Wikipedia, Pebre is a Chilean condiment made of coriander (cilantro), chopped onion, olive oil, garlic and ground or pureed spicy aji peppers. Pebre is most commonly spooned on meat, usually from a barbecue.
Lilia makes the Pebre right there in front of you with her Cuisinart food processor. WearingÂ plastic gloves, with her fresh washed cilantro, parsley, and scallions in the tubs in front of her, Lilia can barely keep up with the demand for her tasty sauce .
Her co-worker hands out generous samples spread on slices of French bread, and you have to buy a jar once you taste it. It tastes fresh, green, garlicky, a little spicy but not too much. Lilia says it's good with potatoes or with chicken. My imagination went to a nice chicken or beef stew laced with the sauce. Or maybe just ladled over a grilled steak or fried eggs. It was great with the bread, and I read that Chileans eat it mostly just like that, as a spread on bread. For $6.00, you get a pint jar of Pebre with a list of the ingredients and a chicken recipe, if you wish.
