This is a very simple salsa recipe from Los Barrios, a very popular San Antonio restaurant that specializes in authentic Mexican cuisine. This comes straight from the Los Barrios cookbook written by the owner, Diana Barrios Trevino. It is especially great if you need a quick and easy recipe to throw together before a party or when having friends over.
Cool and creamy chipotle dip... mmm! This is a real hit at parties of all sorts, in all seasons! (You can even use this as a pasta sauce and as a topper for sandwiches and burgers, or stir a little into some chowder.) Prep includes chilling.
This recipe is from the Italian Inn in Tulsa, OK. After over 40 years in business they closed their doors. They were famous for their cheese spread that was served before every entree with antipasto and fresh hot breadsticks. They sold as much of the cheese and breadsticks to go as eating in. The cheese is the key to this recipe, and they ordered it from Wisconsin.
My mom made this at a dinner party she had when dh and I went home recently. She served it with homemade chips made of toasted foccia bread. This has a bit more zip than the traditional onion soup mix dips without having to use the mix!
I was looking for a really good Pico de Gallo salsa. I came upon this fabulous Chilean version (Pebre) in the Moosewood cookbook. Apparently this is Chile's most popular side dish and is served with every meal. Awesome just with chips or with anything you'd serve with salsa.
