Pico De Gallo
  • 6 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno chili, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (fresh will taste the best)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Mix all ingredients. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour to blend flavors.
A very basic recipe but very good, especially as a starter. I found this in one of those Betty Crocker mini magazines published back in 1999. I also use this in my guacamole. I'll take a couple of tablespoons and add it to smashed avocados. Remember, if you like it hotter, use more jalapenos and leave in the seeds. I will sometimes use a couple of tablespoons of this salsa with 2 smashed avocados to make my guacamole
