This is a very quick salsa to make when you're in a hurry. Great on burritoes, eggs, tacos or just about anything. For someone who never wrote down a recipe, my mother-in-law sure taught me a lot of good recipes. I am so appreciative of that.

How to Make Pico de Gallo

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium below and stir to combine.
  2. Use the one end of an empty can to crush the ingredients to product juice.
  3. I keep an empty, small tomato sauce can (both ends cut out) and washed for this purpose; or you can use a mortar and pastel (molcajete).
