Ingredient List

  • 1 jar (650 mL) Old El Paso* Thick N’ Chunky Salsa
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • 1 French baguette

  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

Preparation

  1. In bowl, stir together salsa, garlic and cilantro. Set aside.
  2. Slice baguette into 1/2-inch (1 cm) slices and place on baking sheets. Brush one side of each slice lightly with olive oil.
  3. Broil baguette slices 2 inches (5 cm) from broiler for 1 minute until browned. Turn slices and toast other side. Turn slices oil-side up.
  4. Spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the salsa mixture onto each toast slice and sprinkle each with some cheese, if desired. Refrigerate any leftover salsa. Broil 1 minute longer or until cheese has melted.

Expert Tips
