Pico de Gallo

Comments : 1 Posted in : Uncategorized on by : Cameron

Who doesn’t love Pico de Gallo? Maybe it’s my weakness for fresh ingredients, but I absolutely love the stuff, especially on fish tacos. Anyway, I was looking around online recently and I couldn’t seem to find a recipe that seemed quite right to me. I prefer a balance of ingredients. What I kept finding however, were recipes that had huge amounts of onions, too much tomato, no garlic, etc. It was disappointing. So, I threw this together one day and was immediately thrilled. Admittedly this recipe has a higher concentration of jalapeño than many, so feel free to eliminate or cut it to half a pepper. I went with garlic powder in this recipe so as to get the garlic flavor without adding a garlic burn as it feels out of place to me. This is great with chips, and alongside the guacamole.
