Tortilla Chips with Cheese Sauce and Salsa

P1050553

Hi!

With all major stores announcing end of season sale it gave us a good opportunity to shop, so the last weekend we had gone to the mall for some shopping and I picked up a few pieces for my kitchen and I simply loved my herb chopper which I had been eyeing for sometime.

After all the shopping we landed at the food court and ordered our meals. The younger one ordered the Tex-Mex Nachos. The chips were good but the salsa along with it was pathetic. After cajoling him for a long time he managed to finish his stuff but I promised myself that I will make a better version for him.

So one fine morning when I saw the sun coming out and giving us some warmth I thought of indulging into the Tortilla Chips,  tomato salsa and a Cheese sauce which I made in the microwave in a jiffy. The kids absolutely loved it and the younger one declared that the chips were the best made in the world. S, after tasting the salsa said that the chefs should learn to make the salsa from me. I was surely on cloud nine after getting such hearty compliments from the family. I personally thought that, not only the home made chips are tasty and healthier but making them comes out really cheap as compared to the price one pays for buying them, really wonder why the readymade ones are so heavily priced!!

1/2 cup corn meal

1/2 cup APF

2 tsp oil

I am really excited to see this recipe. My family and I are big Mexican food fans. I have never seen a homemade tortilla recipe. It looks wonderful and your salsa looks delicious also. Looking forward to trying it. That was so cute that your son gave such high praise. It is so nice when you make something and everyone really loves it, especially the young ones who are usually so hard to please:)
