We make this a lot and I mean a lot!
And we always make a ridiculously large batch of it and I always think there is no way we will eat all of this before it goes bad.
Then I head to the fridge the next day and guess what it's gone!
Pico De Gallo is as much a staple in our house as Taco Tuedays and I know you'll love it as much as we do so I thought I would add an updated pic and reshare this oldie but a goodie!
This recipes comes courtesy of Pastor Nik! Ok just kidding!
We went over to Nik and Heathers for Superbowl and Nik went on to tell everyone he had made the pico! He's such a prankster! But his wife Heather did make a really tasty crock pot beef sandwich with caramelized onions ( still drooling thinking of there tastiness) and Andrea had made a super tasty brownie with peanut butter swirled in!
I will have to work on trying to get something close on the brownies. (If I was smart I would have wrapped the 2 brownies left and taken them home, but I was too stuffed to think ahead!)
Actually this recipe came to together from my Sister in law Dana. She taught me the top secret ingredient of a fresh juiced orange. It really balances out the citrus!
This recipe is a favorite I make it almost every time I make tacos or fajitas! I was super lucky Klesick Family Farm added the ingredients to my order late on Tuesday so I was able to have everything delivered!
They really are awesome for delivery.
Really the pictures are just because I love the way the light was hitting the produce!
Chop, chop your tomatoes.
Shred cabbage and carrots. I used the food processor! You can also finely chop the cabbage. Also dice your onion, some how I'm missing the picture.
Chop finely the jalapeno and pickled jalapeno.
Juice orange and limes. Eek! What happened to my hand?
Chop cilantro finely.
