pico de gallo, chow-chow preparation....

I went to the fruit stand yesterday and I purchased a watermelon, I always like to go and purchase them at the fruit stand during was about $ was a good choice! I also saw on the shelves many jars of is good on hot dogs, beans, and whatever else you may like....

I have a few tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and I went and purchased the cilantro....I really enjoy the scent of the fresh cilantro....

Pico De Gallo is very good with nice tortilla chips, I enjoy them all!....

I created some Pico De Gallo last night placed in a glass jar.

you need:
4 tomatoes
4 onions
2 jalapenos
1 lime
handful of cilantro

Pico De Gallo

Make sure you dice up a few tomatoes and a few onions--equal amounts of both. Chop the cilantro.

Slice a few jalapenos in half, remove those seeds! yikes! Use a spoon to scrape them out of there. WASH your hands!!! That jalapeno liquid will burn like fire if you get it in your eyes!....Chop the jalapeno slices...

Place all of this in a bowl.

Now you slice a lime in half and you take the juice from that lime half and pour it over the bowl of tomatoes, onions, jalapenos..Sprinkle with salt if you wish and stir together until combined.

Good with tortilla chips....or whatever you wish.
