  • 5- 8 Plum Tomatoes
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 cups fresh cilantro
  • 2 or 3 jalapenos
  • 2 or 3 sweet peppers red& yellow (optional)
  • 1 lime
  • Salt (to your taste)


  • The first step is to clean and chop all the ingredients. You can chop them as big or small as you want. I like all my vegetables to be same in size except for the cilantro and the Jalapenos which I try to mince as much as I can. If you follow all the previous tips (post) I can guarantee this will be your go-to recipe every time you want to enjoy Pico De Gallo
  • The next step is to combine all the chopped ingredients in a serving bowl and toss some salt to your taste. Add the lime juice, stir and refrigerate.
  •  It's important to let the salsa sit for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour to let all of those flavors combine. Then, mix and blend nicely before serving it. Top it on some tacos, grab your margarita and enjoy!


  • The secret to a great pico de gallo is to use fresh ingredients. to avoid a runny salsa, there are ways to avoid this. Chop all the tomatoes and place them into a strainer and let them sit to drain all the excess water into a bowl.
  • If you are not a fan of the onion flavor and want to reduce the intensity of its taste just peel the onion and place it in a container with cold water for a few minutes before cutting into it. Trust me, It works. My husband likes onions in his food as long as it doesn’t taste too much like onion so this is my trick. You can also cut them very tiny and use a less amount.
  • To release the most juice out of your limes, place them on a hard surface and roll it around with the palm of your hand to soften them.
