How to Make Mama Dee's Pico de Gallo
- Using disposable gloves, cut in 1/2 and seed the peppers. I leave the seeds in 1 of the jalapenos. Place in food processor with chopping blade attachment. Add 1 of the ripest tomatoes, garlic and the juice of 2 limes. Process until very finely chopped, almost pureed (I find this distributes the peppers and garlic throughout the salsa better witout over chopping the other ingerdients)
- Cut the remaining tomatoes in 1/4's and cut onion in 1 inch pieces. Add to the food processor bowl. Add cilantro and S & P. Pulse until pico de gallo is the desired texture u like. I like it fairly small. Taste for flavor and adjust as needed.
- Serve with fresh tortilla chips. I always like to have this in my fridge for a quick snack of chips & salsa or to put on tacos, burritos, etc. I also love it on my eggs and omlettes.
