Pico de Gallo

This simple pico de gallo recipe is perfect for your favorite Mexican dishes that need that extra kick in flavor.

Pico de Gallo is typically a hot relish that offers all the taste of traditional salsa but with a bir more bite. It can be thought of as an uncooked condiment with chopped tomatoes, onions and chilies at its base, but it's also given lots of added flavor with a few more traditional ingredients thrown into the mix. Everything from lime to mango can be incorporated!

Similar to salsa, pico de gallo is a favorite topping of ours when enjoying some chicken tacos , but we've also been known to top fresh grilled fish with it, too! Luckily, this simple recipe is perfect for those two dishes - and much more!


2 beefsteak tomatoes

2 white onions

Handful of cilantro

1 fresh lime

A pinch of salt

2 green chilies


Dice tomatoes, green chilies and onion into small pieces, then add a pinch of salt to the mix. Finely dice cilantro and fold into the existing mix. Squeeze lime juice over the top to fit your taste. 

Can be made a day in advance or served immediately.
