Nachos with red sauce...?

Can't Post | Private Reply
I wanted to make some California style mexican food - nachos in partcular. I remember having nacho's years ago that had a nice RED SAUCE (I believe it was paste or at least the server said so) on them, but I don't know how they made it. Any ideas?

A good basic red salsa is great for nachos. I have a recipe that is worth trying. http://mexicanfoodjournal.com/easy-salsa-roja/ If you make it, I would love to know how it turns out. Hope this helps. Cheers!

You might like to try making this salsa by roasting the tomato, onion, garlic, and chile on a comal (griddle) or in a skillet until they are dark brown on the outside (caramelized). Once the vegetables are caramelized and soft, either blend them in a molcajete (volcanic stone grinding bowl) or blender.

The resulting salsa will be more flavorful than if you boil the vegetables.

I think this is a good suggestion.
