This salsa is very different from all the others, in fact is difficult to believe that it is a salsa because it basically consists of the combination of chili with melted cheese. Other ingredients typical of the Mexican salsas are also used to give more flavor to the whole preparation and as final touch spices are used to aromatize the scissor salsa.
The difference that there is between a melted cheese and this salsa are few, actually this salsa can be seen as a very condimented melted cheese and if you are adventurous it can be enjoyed as an appetizer. However what we recommend is to use it in tacos, the combination that is generated is phenomenal.
*The name of this salsa is very curious and unfortunately we have not been able to find out its origin. But we think that it is because the scissors can be used a lot in the preparation.
