The Staten Island salsa with its tomatillo and tomato roots provides the flavor base for these Sour Cream Chicken Nachos (photo below). The first time I had these was when I went to Texas to visit a friend from college. It was love at first bite with the spicy chicken, cool sour cream, gooey cheese, and crunchy tortilla chips. Back in Virginia, we didn't really have much Tex-Mex. I'd eaten tacos with packaged seasoning and shells from a box, but that was about as far as anything resembling Mexican food ever got. Well, except for the Chili con Queso I mentioned previously.

"No fork - how can you call them 'fork tacos' if there's no fork?!"
