Something that I really like in Mexican food is the salsa. Fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro, with lime, sugar and heat. When i discovered how to make it, I always do. Of course, it is some kind of production altogether though, with me messing up the kitchen. But I have always liked my fresh ones than those canned or bottled ones.
I decided to make a chicken fajita salad. The preparation is a bit of a mess, but I will try to drill ti down as best as I could. But the new discovery here is the Tortilla Crisps. It is an unfamiliar item of Village Gourmet, a local brand of, well, gourmet bread. So the tortilla is sprinkled with cheese and herbs then baked to a crisp and packaged as chips. Good as nachos, I think. 🙂
