I invented this recipe, well...kind of. I read the ingredients off a jar of Dorito's salsa dip in 1999 and set about creating my perfect salsa. 11 years on, we enjoy it with plantains, on tortillas, as pizza sauce and with rice. The last time we had them (pictured here), we rolled tortillas with plantains, veggies and some flaked white fish, topped with salsa and enjoyed! —Kitchen Butterfly

For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
