salsaI love themed food combos. One of my favorite groupings is salsa, chips, and cold Corona beer. Yummy! I used to make fresh, no-cook salsa. But recently, I tried boiling the tomatoes before mixing all the ingredents together. I liked how it turned out - thicker and tastier.

Boil around six large local tomatoes for around one minute and then plunge them in cold water. Peel and crush the tomatoes, then mix in around half a head of roasted garlic, cumin, salt, jalapeño (or chopped labuyo), lime or calamansi juice, one each of red and white onion, chopped cilantro (a.k.a wansoy), and around three chopped uncooked local tomatoes. Cook the mixture in a pan until the flavors blend, chill, then serve with tortilla chips. Nacho Fast sells chips (P90) which are imported but fried locally. You can also get imported Tostitos (P120) at most supermarkets. Does anyone know where I can get cheaper chips?

i don't know the exact address but there's a house in the scout area (near timog) which sells chips for 30 pesos a bag. they also have really good sans rival and other cakes. i'll take note of the street name next time i go there.

it's about 3 blocks away from estrelle's caramel cakes (which is another favorite).
