The other evening I was flipping channels on the TV. That was when I chanced upon Paul Hollywood's TV show, Bread. Any fans of Paul Hollywood here?
Ooohhh....I love watching the man kneading dough. So sexy, I tell you hee..hee... He makes it all look so simple. Then the next thing is you see is him pulling out a beautiful loaf from the oven.
On that particular episode, he made Tortilla Towers. These are tortillas layered with a spicy shredded chicken, guacamole, sour cream and salsa. It looked incredibly delicious.
I was rather taken with the salsa (and of course the spicy chicken) and I knew that I had to make it. So I roasted 4 ripe tomatoes, 2 jalapenos, 2 red onions and 4 cloves of garlic until they were charred.
All these were blended in my mini food processor together with a bunch of coriander leaves, lime juice and some salt.
Loved the salsa! Tangy and smoky and so exotic tasting. It reminded me of the salsa I had at Chillis but so much better. If you love salsa, try this one.
