Pico de Gallo translates to "rooster's beak" in English (when you dip tortilla chips into it, your thumb and forefinger loosely resemble a pecking chicken or rooster!)So cute! I LOVE fresh pico de gallo in the summertime for snaking on with white corn chips, or with my favorite Mexican creation! Cool and refreshing with a kick! You can make this as hot or mild as you like.
