Recipe: Pico de Gallo

This easy, fresh tomato salsa is delicious on tacos, tostadas or simply served with tortilla chips. I love this stuff.  Seriously, I can’t get enough of it.  It’s simple yet packs a nice punch that your mouth will love.  Since the heat of jalapeños varies, start with one, taste, then add more if you want it hotter. For a sweet-tangy variation, add about 1 cup diced fresh fruit, such as pineapple, mango or peach.

About 4 cups

Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 cups diced ripe tomatoes (3-4 medium)
  • 1 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1-2 jalapeño peppers, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Combine tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeño to taste, lime zest and juice, and sugar in a medium serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
