Next time you are thinking of making some Mexican food, skip the store-bought salsa which is usually filled with sugar and all sorts of preservatives.
Instead try to make your own, healthy and authentic Mexican salsa! It’s called “Pico de Gallo” or “Rooster Beak” and in Mexico we eat it with tortilla chips, on top of our tacos or nachos, on top of our eggs, etc. It pretty much tastes great with everything!
It’s super easy to make and in this basic recipe, it requires only 4 ingredients! So give it a try :-)
Dice the tomatoes, onion and cilantro
Tip: Don’t dice them too finely, it’s best chunky ;)
Throw diced vegetables in a bowl
Squeeze the juice of the lime over the vegetables
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix it all and you’re ready to rock n roll
Optional: If you like it spicy, then add a diced jalapeño
Tip: Remove seeds if you don’t want it too spicy
Optional: If you want some extra consistency, add the diced avocado
Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!
Enjoy amigos! :)
