Nachos! A perfect snack to have while watching television. Or to serve as a starter at your dinner party. It is very easy to make, especially if you have ready made nachos at your disposal.

I used fried samosa strips as nacho chips. You can use Doritos or any other nacho chips.

Here is the recipeΒ πŸ™‚

Total cooking time – 30 minutes

Serves – 2-3


For nachos:

Doritos chips or Samosa strips cut into triangles and fried till crisp – as needed

Cream – 200 mls

Lemon juice – of two lemons

Salt – as per taste

Blanch 4 out of the five tomatoes. Peel off the skins and blend them. Set aside.

In a sauce pan, heat oil and add onions and capsicum. Cook them till onions turn translucent. Next add in the blended tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, black pepper, crushed red chilies. Let it cook for a minute.

Deseed and chop the leftover tomato. Mix it in the sauce pan. Cook it for another minute. Season the salsa with salt and oregano. Salsa is ready. Let it cool before using it to assemble the Nachos.
