As soon as I decided to make Tortilla Chips,I made up my mind to do a cheese dip and more than one salsa recipe . I did make a cheese dip but I got around to making only 4 salsas.
What looked like simple dishes turned out to be so time consuming and with the kids around on the weekend and the endless house chore, the task felt so tiring!!
But when I saw how much the kids were enjoying the salsas and the chip, I felt it was totally worth the effort…
Salsa is a Spanish term for sauce and to particularly used as dips. Most of them are tomato based but now there are so many varieties of salsas.
The blending of salsas was traditionally done using motor and pestle but nowadays with the advent of gadgets, blenders are being used.
Here are the salsas that I made for this marathon and along with it I have added a few more from the past.
