    NOTE: I like to use a couple of green tomatoes whenever I can find them, and I prefer to hollow my tomatoes out and use only the outside, I don't like the mushy or juiciness from the centers.

    NOTE: If using fresh corn, cut corn off the cob and add right to the pico, same with pickled carrots.
