Method to Make Pico de Gallo

  • Stir together tomatoes, Onion, Cilantro, jalapeño pepper, lime juice, garlic, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  • Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.


CHANGE IT UP: Add a diced avocado to the mixture, or see my list provided above the recipe for alternatives to tomatoes.

CILANTRO HATERS: You can significantly decrease the amount of cilantro used, or omit it completely if you insist! I don’t recommend substituting parsley here.
