Pico de gallo is a staple in my kitchen because it is so versatile, and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. Not only does it make a great dip, it’s a great topping for a taco or a quesadilla. You can also top eggs, chicken, fish, or even a hamburger with it!
I have to admit, Mexican is my all time favorite food! Bring out the chips and dip and I lose all self control! So another great thing about pico de gallo is that if I get a hankerin’ for some Mexican, I can indulge myself with this bold, flavorful dip and not feel guilty about it. It’s just a combination of onion, tomato, jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and a sprinkle of salt. No guilt there.
I thinly dice onion, tomato, jalapeño, garlic, and cilantro.
Then I mix it all together, squeeze some lime juice, and give it a little sprinkle of salt.
Allow it to sit for a few minutes for all of the flavors to develop.
Serve with chips and enjoy…guilt free!
All of those bold flavors in the pico de gallo also make a great guacamole. Dice some avocado.
Add some pico de gallo, and mix together.
Now you’ve got some really flavorful guacamole!
Next time you’re ready to head south of the border, make some pico de gallo and you’ll have yourself a fiesta right in your own kitchen!
