Ingredients:

  • 4 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1-2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste

Instructions:

  1. Start by gathering all the necessary ingredients for your Pico de Gallo. Ensure that the tomatoes, onion, jalapeños, cilantro, and lime juice are all fresh and ready to use.
  2. Begin by dicing the tomatoes into small, uniform pieces. You can remove the seeds if desired, but they add extra moisture and flavor to the salsa.
  3. Finely chop the onion and jalapeño peppers, taking care to remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapeños if you prefer a milder salsa. Adjust the quantity of jalapeños according to your desired level of spiciness.
  4. Chop the fresh cilantro leaves, discarding any tough stems, and set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, chopped onion, chopped jalapeños, and chopped cilantro. Mix gently to combine.
  6. Drizzle the fresh lime juice over the tomato mixture, and sprinkle with salt and black pepper to taste.
  7. Gently toss the ingredients together until evenly coated with the lime juice and seasoning. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed, adding more salt, pepper, or lime juice to suit your preferences.
  8. Once the Pico de Gallo is well mixed and seasoned to your liking, cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  9. Before serving, give the Pico de Gallo a final stir and taste test. Adjust the seasoning if necessary, and serve chilled with your favorite Mexican dishes or as a refreshing dip with tortilla chips.
