Top Review by Bridget C
Just had these for breakfast to set us up for a long walk around the loch with the dog and it was really good, especially the chilli sauce. We have a ton of tomatoes which I was just going to make simple tomato sauce from and freeze but I made this salsa instead and I'm glad I did. In fact, I'm going to make a big batch of it to freeze instead. We used Doritos (I know, I know but it added a nice crunch texture to the dish), then ladled the salsa and topped with a fried egg. We didn't use any cheese and just served the bacon on the side. I also simmered down the sauce to reduce it and get rid of excess water - don't know if you would need to do this if you used tinned or not. We don't have a cooked breakfast very often, but this recipe is going in my cookbook and I'm sure we'll use it again and again, if nothing else for the salsa on its own.
