    Oh no!! please don't call this chimichurri. this is a "sauce". there's no sweetness or spicyness in chimichurri. No bell peppers (adds sweetness), or spicy peppers.

    if you want good chimichurri use:
    -mashed garlic (until it's oily)
    -olive oil,
    -vinegar
    -parsley (chopped and mashed)
    -oregano (dry is OK)
    -salt to taste.
    use as much as you want of each thing. DO NOT BLEND the ingredients in blender. wait at least 15 minutes to use so the oregano soaks. It's better the next day and lasts over a week in the fridge (oil, vinegar and salt preserve the garlic and parsley).
    ENJOY!
