I have a confession to make…

… I make a pretty awesome pico de gallo!!

Yup! It is pretty fantastic, and everybody loves it! I have yet to meet someone who does know love my pico! During the Spring Challenge I promised I would make some, keep track of the measurements and then share my ah-mazing recipe with y’all. Well today is your lucky day! I made some pico de gallo last night and kept track of exactly what I put in there. This made a pretty big mess in my kitchen and dirtied every single measuring device I have, BUT I now have all the little details to share with y’all.

Salsa 1salsa 2

To start off you must gather all the following ingredients:

2 cups of diced tomatoes (about 2 medium)

1/3 cup finely diced jalapeño (1 medium)

1 cup diced red onion  (about a 1/4 of a large onion)

3 cloves of garlic finely minced

1/2 cup of chopped loosely packed celantro

1/2 tbsp of salt

pinch of black pepper

2 tbsp of lemon juice

1 lime (juiced)

Pretty much you just throw all of this together, then mix it all up. Let it sit in the fridge for about an hour so that all the flavors can be mixed and it is ready to enjoy!!

This was before putting on a lid and shaking my salsa around! I feel that it mixes much better and makes less of a mess!

This salsa cost me about $1.05 Total! Way cheaper then buying ready made, way healthier and tastier. I am still saying my salsa is winning! 

We are in love with Mexican food in this household, and I love making things in big batches that can be stuck in the fridge for a few days. This pico seems to taste better and better the longer you let it hang around.

PS… yesterdays my jalapeno was not very spicy, and my salsa turned out very mild (I always leave the seeds inside the pepper), you can add more or less based on how hot you want the salsa to be.
