Two Secrets to making Great Pico de Gallo:

1) Remove the seeds and pulp from the tomatoes before you dice them.  This will help keep your Pico de Gallo from getting too liquid-y after sitting awhile.

2) Dice everything small.  This allows all the flavors to blend nicely, and also makes it easier to eat.


INSTRUCTIONS

1.   Combine the tomatoes, onions and cilantro in a bowl.

2.  Add diced chiles, a little at a time.  We usually start with about 1 Tablespoon, but you can use more or less depending on your preference and the heat of the individual chiles you're using.  If you're not sure, start with less; you can always add more later.

3.  Stir in the lime juice and salt.

4.  Use a tortilla chip or a bit of corn tortilla to taste it.  Add a bit more diced chiles if it needs more heat.

5.  Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend before serving.

6.  Your Pico de Gallo is ready!  Serve with tortilla chips, tacos, over eggs, or whatever sounds good!

Have fun!
