Old Fashioned Pico De Gallo Recipe

Pico de gallo is made with fresh tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro. It’s a terrific party starter with tortilla chips or as a taco topping. Huge success in my home! Chill for up to 3 hours before serving for a more strong flavor.

The beauty of pico de gallo is that, despite its origins in Mexican cuisine, it can be used on a variety of cuisines. Basically, if you have a meal that needs a little more flavor, serve it with some pico on top or on the side. Take a slice of pico with your main entree whenever you want some extra flavor.

One way to improve the flavor of your pico de gallo is to filter it just before serving. This is due to the fact that all of the ingredients are so watery. If you don’t drain the surplus liquid, you’ll wind up with a watery mess, and putting a teaspoon on your food will dilute it.
