Pico de Gallo

Everyone loves a good pico recipe! This versional calls for tomatoes, green chilis, onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt and is SO addicting!

What is Pico de Gallo?

Pico de gallo. Most of you have had this and may not even realize it. You may think it’s salsa, but it’s a salsa fresca that is usually chunkier and contains chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, salt and lime juice. Other ingredients, like avocados, can be added, but if you’re anywhere in the Southwest you’ve probably had this served to you at a restaurant with your tacos, salad or burritos. Most Arizonans are huge fans so we wanted to share our recipe with you guys today.

We’ve made pico for family functions for a long time, but this particular recipe is modified from one of my mom’s friends. Other than the time it takes to chop of veggies, this recipe is very simple and is great for chips or to serve with any Mexican food. These ingredients combine to make a delicious, fresh and irresistible topping for any Mexican dish.

We are huge fans of avocado, so I think we will definitely be adding some next time we make it. It just adds even more delicious flavor to the pico. Serving this with warm tortilla chips will be the highlight of any party or get together. It’s just that good and is so addicting!!

This will definitely become a Mexican meal must-have!!

As much as we love avocados, we also love green chiles. They were the perfect addition to this pico! Since we enjoy so much Mexican food, you better believe we will be making this pico de gallo to serve it all with. 🙂
