Pico De Gallo & Guacamole Recipe
February 24th is National Tortilla Chip Day! Ole! Why is it so easy for me to get behind the celebration of national food holidays? This one is especially easy. I’m passionate about food and I happen to LOVE Mexican cuisine. I base my opinion of Mexican food restaurants solely on their chips, salsa and guacamole. I could eat it everyday. So, I felt compelled to develop what to me are the perfect pico de gallo and guacamole recipes. I like a lot of lime, so if you don’t – just hold back a little on what I suggest.
Homemade Pico De Gallo Recipe:
*Obviously, garden fresh tomatoes in the summer are going to be best, but you’ll be surprised how great it tastes year round with tomatoes from the grocery store!
*I forgot to picture the garlic clove and cayenne pepper – I was a little too excited to do the tasting! 🙂pe Card
