Pico de ag Gallo

Leslie Speed Dutton


Being born and raised in Texas, we go through a lot of Pico, not just on Tex-Mex food. I will make it to serve when we BBQ, bake fresh fish or anything else that I want to serve a bit of freshness with a kick.

The secret of the heat lays in how you prepare the peppers. Always use gloves. For less heat. Use a spoon to scrape out all of the seeds and veins. If you like your food hot. Just cut the peppers up, leaving the seeds. .
