Homemade Salsa Dip for Nachos (Cooked version)

This simply fresh and easy to make homemade recipe of salsa is prepared from tomatoes, onion, garlic, and green chillies. I don’t like the taste of the packed or canned version of salsa and this homemade version of the recipe tastes amazing. A canned or store-bought version of the salsa is not good for your health too, as it is loaded with lots of preservatives and chemicals.

Most of the Mexican salsa recipes are uncooked that is why they cannot be stored for up to days but our recipe of tomato salsa is a cooked version that is why it can be stored for days.

This delicious homemade salsa is best accompanied with your crispy tortilla chips or nachos. I’ve shared a recipe of crispy and delicious homemade-nachos-corn-chips here. Both baked and non-baked version of nachos or chips recipe is shared on the blog. Click on the link to check out the recipe. Another delicious Mexican inspired dip is also available on the blog i.e. mexican-chilli-cheese-cream.

I like my salsa to be spicy and sour, you can add some jalapeno if available in this recipe. This will make the dip spicier and adjust the taste as per your preference. And apart from nachos, you can also enjoy this delicious dip in various Mexican dishes like tacos, enchiladas, or quesadillas.

Let’s see how to prepare this delicious homemade salsa for nachos:

I have prepared this recipe by first roasting the tomatoes well over the flame until when all the outer covering of tomato turn black. After then remove the outer layer and then chop half of the tomatoes and then puree the remaining one.

Roasting tomatoes

After that saute for few minutes the chopped onions, garlic, chillies, chopped tomatoes and puree in some oil.

Adding tomatoes to salsa

Now is the turn of taste-enhancing ingredients like tomato ketchup, salt, pepper, oregano and other herbs. After adding these ingredients I just mix it for a few minutes and finally enjoyed with favourite chips.
