I’m a huge fan of fresh Homemade Pico de Gallo! Luckily, it’s pretty easy to make it yourself, if you don’t mind a little bit of chopping.
Believe me, it’s totally worth it. Even my kids, who don’t like tomatoes (as in, they pick them out of everything) love this stuff.
I’m really not sure how someone can dislike tomatoes and love pico de gallo, but if they’ll eat their veggies this way, I’m not complaining!
You can easily adapt this recipe to suit your tastes. Leave out the jalapeno all together–although this version really isn’t very spicy–or add more if you like it with more heat.
If you don’t like cilantro, feel free to leave it out. And it won’t hurt at all to use a little more or less of anything.
Serve this with tortilla chips for a light appetizer or snack, or use it to top your favorite Tex-Mex dishes.
