Salsa and Chips

The all time favourite Mexican starter :)

Tortilla Chips:
You will require
1 pkt store bought flour tortillas
Oil for deep frying
Salt and freshly cracked pepper for seasoning

Cut each tortilla into 6-8 parts and deep fry till golden and oil stops bubbling. Make sure that you fry it enough so that it stays really crisp. Sprinkle salt and cracked pepper to taste

Salsa (Tomato based)

You will need
5 juicy tomatoes
1/2 onion
1/2 red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic
2 scallions (spring onion)
2 jalapeno peppers
2 Serrano peppers
3 +2 tsp olive oil , fresh cilantro-a handful
salt, pepper, chilli powder to taste
Juice of 1/2 lime to taste

Take a pan and add some olive oil in it. Keep the flame in high
Roughly chop all the above veggies. Roast on high till they get slightly charred at the base.
Turn them around and allow the other side to get charred. Allow it to cool.
Roughly grind into a coarse mixture without adding water in a blender. Add some olive oil while grinding.
Add salt, pepper, chilli powder and lime juice to suit your taste
Enjoy with tortilla chips!
