I’m obsessed with Mexican food, and there are few nice places in town that I love, but I’m sometimes a lazy butt and don’t wanna get out of my place. So I bring Mexican food to me by making my own, and this time around I set my sights on nachos con queso y pico de gallo.
Pico de gallo looks a lot like our typical moroccan salad; tomatoes, onions & parsley. That’s the go to in every table at lunch. So when I had it in a mexican restaurant, I wondered why it tasted so sweet. And when I went looking for recipes online, I found out that the reason was pretty simple; it just needed to simmer for quite some time before being served. That way, the tomatoes let out their taste, and the flavors get combined nicely. Some restaurants probably add in a little sugar because it’s extra sweet, but I prefer not to.
I decided to try the recipe out along with queso, which is not hard at all to make. So for fajitas night, I made my very first try, and it turned out just like I dreamed of. I’m being literal when I say dream, I do dream of food no one can judge.
All you need is for pico de gallo is :
- 2 round juicy tomatoes cut in little cubes
- 1/2 lime juice
- 1 chopped white onion
- Chopped parsley
- Salt & pepper
Mix all the ingredients together and reserve in your refrigerator.
- 3 full ( when I say full I mean full ok) tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp flour
- 200 g Cheddar
Make a regular béchamel by melting the butter, adding the flour and mixing the two, then adding milk little by little until it all comes together. Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper, before throwing in your shredded cheese and whisking everything together until it melts completely.
Put your nachos in a round plate; I personally use the cheesy ones sold in Carrefour, drizzle your queso and add in your pico de gallo. That wasn’t so hard was it ? I just had them again for lunch and it was again, very delicious.
The fajitas in the picture below were forgotten in favor of the nachos. What is supposed to be a side dish becomes a main one all thanks to sweet tomatoes and gooey melting cheese, and I so get the appeal. Cheese, my sweet sweet love.
