I’ve had my share of cooking experiments that have gone horribly wrong, but occasionally I just try something and it works out in impressive fashion. Here’s a recent example.
I like breakfast burritos, but with all the stuff I want to put in them, they take a bit long. I was making one with just scrambled eggs and salsa and thought, “Hey, why not heat this salsa up a bit. I like huevos rancheros. Why not?”
So I poured about 1/2 a cup of salsa in my frying pan which was still very hot from cooking the tortilla. The salsa started skittering around and producing a wonderful aroma. I continued cooking it down and the tomato sauce started to carmelize. After about two minutes, most of the water was cooked out and I had salsa paste. I poured it over the eggs, wrapped it up, and it was amazing. I can’t get enough. I’ve had it several times since then. I don’t like it with anything else on it – no cheese or anything.
This was made with Pace Medium Salsa. I’ve tried another brand, but it wasn’t as good.
So, what experiments worked out well for you?
