Ultimate Mexican loaded nachos

Don’t we all just love loaded Nachos! With Cricket fever on its high and World cup going on, nachos are probably the best thing to much on while watching the match.

These loaded nachos are

Crunchy
Cheesy
Tangy
Slightly spicy
Delicious
Fresh
and Packed with so much flavour!


There’s just so much going on in these loaded nachos- crispy corn chips, tangy salsa, cheese sauce, corn, jalapenos, olives and other toppings of your choice. These loaded vegetarian nachos will become a party staple in your house whenever guests are over. It's an explosion of flavour in your mouth with nothing else like this to match up to!


This recipe starts by first preparing  my Restaurant style salsa and 10 minute Nacho cheese sauce. Once that is done, all you have to do is to take a nice platter and arrange nacho chips and then add the cheese sauce, corn, jalapenos, olives, cilantro (coriander) and salsa one by one. You can omit some of the toppings and add others too like re-fried beans, sour cream, avocado and more.

If you have always wondered how to make your favourite restaurant appetiser at home, then you must try these loaded nachos! The highlight of these loaded nachos is salsa and cheese sauce. The salsa is so good that you would want to add it to everything like wraps, burritos, fajitas. Cheese sauce also has all the right notes and is cheesy, salty and immensely rich.

These ultimate loaded nachos will be perfect for a Mexican night and will pair really well with Mexican Black bean and tortilla soup, Mexican black bean tacos, Spicy Potato tacos and Mango chilli lemonade.

Ultimate Restaurant style salsa



I bring to you the Ultimate restaurant style salsa recipe! It's so good that I have honestly lost count of how many times I have made it till now. It takes just 10 minutes and it's the only recipe of salsa you will every need, tastes much much better than the ones you get at restaurant.

Its tangy, zingy, spicy and bursting with freshness of coriander and coriander seeds.


When we talk about Mexican food, salsa really is quintessential to this cuisine which is served with tacos, burritos, nachos and many more dishes. Without salsa, no Mexican dish is complete and I just love how everyone keeps going for more of it and cannot resist it. This salsa is so delicious that once you make it, you will want a batch of it all the time in your refrigerator.(Stays good in fridge for 2 days)


I love Mexican cuisine as much as I love Italian food. While Italian food is know for its simplicity, Mexican food is characterised by spicy, smoky, garlicky and sour elements. Mango salsa on the blog is one of my favourite things to eat this time of the year. Its great as a salad and tastes equally delicious with nacho chips or khakhara.

Served with nachos, lavash or pita chips, this salsa makes for a great appetiser when you have guests over.  Just like Classic hummus and Green goodness hummus, this salsa is also an amazing dip to host large group of people. It can be added in burritos, wraps and tacos like this Mexican black bean tacos or Lebanese grilled vegetables tacos. You can also use this salsa and home-made nacho cheese sauce to make Loaded Mexican nachos. I'll share both the recipes in my coming posts.



Ingredients

3 medium tomatoes- blanched for 5 minutes
1 medium onion- chopped
3-5 jalapeno slices
1 tsp fresh coriander seeds
1/2 cup fresh coriander
½ tsp Lemon juice
2 Tbsp Ketchup
3-4 drops of Tobasco
Salt to taste

Method

Add onion, coriander and coriander seeds in the processor and pulse 3-4 times until onions are very finely chopped. Tip them in a bowl and keep it aside.

In the same processor, add chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, salt, tobasco, ketchup, and lemon juice.

Pulse again till tomatoes are well blended with a slightly coarse texture.

Mix these tomatoes properly in the bowl with onions. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Chill and serve with chips and nachos.
