Pico De Gallo

Sherry Blizzard


Really???? Have you priced pre-made Pico in the store? Don't pay that price! Make your own so much cheaper and better! YOU control how much heat goes into it. All you need is a white onion, some jalapeños, Roma tomatoes and a lime. (Don't forget the chips) Cents on the dollar. A good rule of thumb, Equal parts. Jalapeño, Onion, Tomatoes. Eyeball the ingredients, they should be around equal in size. Add lime juice, salt and cilantro to taste. It doesn't get any better than this. BTW I love, love, love my Vidalia Onion Chopper for this.
