Food Video: Mojito, Chips & Salsa

... continuing with my obsession with video recipes, here is a super easy and tasty recipe for some semi-homemade chips, salsa and the always delicious mojito!! Doesn't a video recipe make everything look much easier...?

Here is the recipe:

Tortilla Chips (serves 2)

6 small corn tortillas (I used 5 1/2" ones)
1 tbsp olive oil

Stack tortillas and slice into quarters. Place in a bowl, add olive oil, and toss to coat. Cook over medium heat in a non-stick frying pan until they begin to brown, about three minutes per side. Remove from heat and, if necessary, blot with a paper towel to remove any excess oil.

Serrano Salsa (serves 2)

6 ounces cherry tomatoes (approx 17 tomatoes)
1 serrano chile
a small handful of cilantro
1 garlic clove
1/3 cup white onion
fresh lime juice to taste (I used 1/2 lime)
salt to taste (I used 1/4 tsp)

Finely dice the tomatoes. Scoop into a bowl. Cut the chile in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds if you want (I did). Chop the chile as finely as you can, then add it to the bowl. Carefully bunch up the cilantro sprigs, and chop into small pieces, stems and all. Add to the bowl. Mince the garlic and add to the bowl. Next, finely dice the onion and add to the bowl. Mix well. Taste and season with lime juice and salt, mix again, and let stand if you have a little time, for the flavors to meld before eating.

Mojitos (serves 2)

20 fresh mint leaves
1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups ice cubes
6 tbsp white rum
1 cup club soda

Place 10 mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into each glass. Use a muddler (or the handle of a wooden spoon) to crush the mint and lime. Divide the remaining lime wedges and sugar between the two glasses, and muddle again. Fill each glass with 1 cup ice. Divide the rum between the two glasses. Add 1/2 cup club soda to each glass. Stir well and enjoy.

My mojitos aren't super authentic but I use diet 7 UP (or sprite or Fresca) instead of using soda water and sugar. I'm so gonna make chips and salsa this weekend.
