If you fancy a snack and really want tortilla chips and dips then we all know this can be really unhealthy. Making your own dips can make a huge difference to this so here is a fantastic recipe for garden fresh salsa perfect as a BBQ side dish.
How to adapt this recipe to different heats
If you try this recipe and decide you would rather have it hotter then simply change the chilli pepper you use. Do take it steady though as if you suddenly swap to a handful of scotch bonnet peppers you might be begging for a glass of water.
The advantage of this recipe is it does not require cooking so if you build it up and taste it as you go then you really can not go wrong.
Never be afraid to add too little as you can always add more. Why not check out chillies which are only slightly hotter than you have tried before? I found this site helpful to compare different chillies.
Using varieties of tomatoes to make this different
Have you ever seen the mixed packs of tomatoes in the supermarket and wondered how you could use them? This is the perfect recipe and the bigger the variety you use the more colourful it is.
What to enjoy this garden fresh salsa with
Not only is this a great recipe to enjoy with other dips and crudites it is also great with dishes like an omelette and a great way to add extra vegetables to your meal.
A crowd-pleaser this would be great for a BBQ or a buffet of any kind whatever the time of year. If you have visitors then putting out bowls of dips and crisps etc couldn’t be easier.
With a homemade dip like this one too it is a great way of showing off how organised you are, even though it only took you 15 minutes and with ingredients, you likely already had in!
