Pico de Gallo translates to Roosters Beak. This is a great Pico de Gallo recipe right from my grandmothers kitchen. You will love this recipe fresh, sweet, and spicy all together right out of Mexico. This is an authentic Pico de Gallo recipe. It was always on our table in the summer time. We enjoyed with tortilla chips or on top of grilled meats from the bar-b-cue. I am sure it will be a favorite at your home. Enjoy

This pico de gallo recipe will knock your socks off... in more ways than one! We love the delightfully fresh combination of peppers, onion and fruit. It packs a real punch, though, so try adjusting the amount of jalapenos if you typically like to walk on the milder side. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
