Living in Texas I’d say that Tex-Mex recipes are my specialty. I have taught myself over the almost 15 years I’ve lived here how to add spice, flavor and that tex-mex flare using fresh real ingredients. And THAT is something I’m very proud of.

谈到经典的墨西哥食谱时,你不能比新鲜的Pico de Gallo食谱更经典。我可以直接在一个装满Pico de Gallo的桌子前面设立商店,guacamole,salsa roja和筹码,是有史以来最多的人。加入A.homemade Margaritaand a perfect setup just got even better.

This Pico de Gallo Recipe is my go to recipe for a fresh salsa. It’s easy with only 6 ingredients, comes together fast and infused with fresh flavor that you won’t be able to get enough of. I’m warning you now, just make a double batch and keep it in the refrigerator, it gets better as it sits.

What is Pico de Gallo?

Pico de Gallo is a very popular Mexican salsa made with a handful of fresh raw ingredients. It’s also known as “Salsa Fresca” or “Fresh Tomato Salsa.” Typically it’s made with equal parts of tomatoes and onion and mixed with fresh cilantro, a generous squeeze of lime juice and salt. In the states we started adding jalapeno for a spicy kick. However, you can leave it out for a milder salsa recipe.

What’s the difference between pico de gallo and salsa?

Pico de gallo shares the same basic ingredients as arestaurant style salsa roja, but the preparation methods are different.

Restaurant Salsas will use roasted or stewed tomatoes as the base and will typically be blended or pureed for a smooth appearance and texture. Pico de gallo always uses fresh RAW ingredients that are diced small leaving you with a chunky fresh salsa.

Pico de Gallo成分:

关于新鲜微微De Gallo的最好的事情是,它是多么新鲜的。不需要烹饪或烤。只是你骰子的新鲜成分,折腾在一起,你已经完成了!

  • 番茄– I like to use roma tomatoes because I like the firmer texture. Remove seeds and membranes to ensure you don’t have a “watery” salsa. Other tomatoes to use would be vine ripe tomatoes or grape tomatoes.
  • Onion– Most recipes call for yellow onion, however I use red onion. I like the sweetness from the red onion and also like the pop of color.
  • 辣椒– Not necessary, but if you like to add a little spice or heat to your salsa, fresh diced jalapeños will do just that.
  • 香菜- 这些新鲜的草药甚至更加照亮了盘子,是一个正宗的墨西哥辣调味品。
  • Lime– Just the juice is perfect and adds a nice zesty flavor to your salsa.
  • Garlic– Garlic in my mind just takes this pico over the top, you don’t need much but the amount that you do use adds so much flavor.
  • Salt- 经常跳过的重要调味料。别忘了盐来带出你新鲜食材的天然味道!

Pico is subject to the person making it. You can easily adjust this quantity to suit your preferences; add more tomatoes for sweetness or jalapeño peppers for a fiery hot salsa.

    Recipe sounds great. I have some Cowhorn peppers growing and am going to try and substitute for your jalapenos. Thanks.

      1. 犰狳胡椒

        Hi Krista – Heat level is comparable to a Jalapeno (perhaps, slightly less hot). I like the flavor better of the jalapeno, but I have these growing all over the place. Cowhorns are longer (8 to 10 inches) but about the same diameter as a jalapeno.

    该Pico de Gallo wars I can see it as series…LOL. Yours sounds much more interesting than your brother’s, definitely healthier. Thanks Krista for sharing this recipe with us on foodie friday.

      haha.. I know.. I noticed it the other day in a picture of yours, too funny. Homegoods all the way! I am so with you, I could eat the stuff with a spoon. Screw the tortilla chips… plus thats where the calories are anyway. hehe

  6. Deb@CookingOnTheFrontBurner

    克里斯塔, I love this summery salsa – fresh ingredients are the best. Hopefully we will have some garden tomatoes soon. Have a good night – pinned!!

    1. 克里斯塔

      So jealous… I tried fresh garden tomatoes last year and I couldnt get rid of the bug problem. I hope yours turn out, they are so good and juicy! Thanks for the pin love.
