How to Make Pico de Gallo

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop your veggies, mix together in bowl & add lemon juice & spices. If you desire more heat than your peppers give you, add a dash of cayanne. Mix together, refrigerate.
  2. 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.
  3. NOTE: If using fresh corn, cut corn off the cob and add right to the pico, same with pickled carrots.
