Tuesday February 24 is National Tortilla Chip Day! I never new such a day existed, but now I know and I’m hungry for some nachos!
Tortillas are very versatile, you can dip them, bake them, and crush them. You can eat them as a snack, a meal, or even dessert. So in honor of National Tortilla Chip Day here a some recipes you might want to try.
Of course the easiest way to eat tortilla is with salsa, my in-laws have had a running competition on who makes the best salsa for years. Each one has his own secret recipe which I’ve never quite gotten them to disclose. Here is my version of salsa, it’s really easy, you can whip it up in minutes and it’s pretty yummy.
1 tomato sliced
1 onion sliced
1 bulb fresh garlic
2-3 jalapeno peppers halved and seeds removed
1 bunch of fresh cilantro chopped
freshly ground sea salt & pepper to taste
Place tomato, onion, peppers on a baking tray, sprinkle salt & pepper, drizzle with 1 tbls. olive oil
Wrap whole garlic bulb in foil, drizzle with 1/2 tbls. olive oil and place on tray with other veggies
Roast everything in 375 degree oven until veggies are cooked – garlic may take longer than other veggies so leave it in until it’s cooked
chop cooked veggies
Slip garlic cloves out of skin and chop
Mix everything together and serve
You can add more salt and pepper to taste
