A classic margarita, that perfect blend of fine tequila, lime juice and triple sec, is the indisputable companion for this Latin American-inspired dish.
Preheat oven to 150°C/300°F. Blanch tomatoes for approx. 1 – 2 min. in boiling water. Then transfer to an ice bath to halt the cooking process.
Finely dice bell pepper, onion, chili, ginger, garlic, and cilantro. Peel skin off tomatoes, quarter, remove seeds, and finely dice.
Using scissors, cut graveyard themed chips, such as headstones and ghosts, from tortillas. Place on a lined baking sheet, transfer to preheated oven, and bake at 150°C/300°F for approx. 10 – 15 min. until golden brown.
In a large frying pan, sauté onion, bell pepper, garlic, ginger, and chili in some vegetable oil over medium heat for approx. 3 – 5 min. until lightly browned. Add tomato paste and stir well to combine. Deglaze with vegetable stock and simmer for approx. 10 – 15 min. Add diced tomato and simmer for an additional 10 – 15 min. Remove from heat and allow to cool for approx. 15 – 20 min. When salsa is cold, season to taste with salt, pepper, sugar, cumin, and lemon juice. Fold in cilantro. Serve with baked tortilla chips. Enjoy!
