Fresh Pico de Gallo!

I love this "Fresh Pico de Gallo" with any type of Mexican food!  I also use it for a dip with tortilla chips!  This is so easy to make and so much better than anything you can buy!  It adds some pretty color to any dish and it's even low fat, which doesn't always happen on my site! Top your tacos with it, add it to your fajitas, top a taco salad, or serve with your enchiladas!   

 Here is what you will need:

3 ripe tomatoes, diced and seeded
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced (I used Vidalia)
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced fine
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped fine
juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Dice and chop all of the ingredients in a fairly small dice.  This needs to be chunkier than salsa, but finer than vegetables for a salad.  Place in a bowl and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder.  Squeeze the lime juice over all and lightly toss.  Cover and chill in the fridge for about an hour.  Toss again before serving.  It's good to give this about an hour to sit so the flavor blend and marry. 

Serve with tortilla chips or as a garnish for all of your favorite Mexican dishes!  It's so delicious and fresh tasting, I can eat it by itself!

  1. I learned how to make this when I lived in California where there is a lot of Mexican food. I make it the same way except I use green onions in place of the white ones called for here. It is SO good I can just eat it with a spoon. My husband and I would eat it, only stopping once in a while to wipe our eyes. Yummy!
