This recipe makes a bunch. If you are craving salsa and chips this recipe will take you about 5 minutes to throw together. One bad thing about this recipe...it was given to me by a cook and cooks don't measure. I have just guessimated
Like most foods, I suspect this would probably taste better if it were deep fried, or slathered in oil or butter - but if that's not an option for you, here's a simple way to make individual serving bowls for your taco salad. You'll need a non-stick frying pan and two bowls that fit snugly together, the larger bowl will dictate the size of your tortilla bowl.
Pico de Gallo translates to "rooster's beak" in English (when you dip tortilla chips into it, your thumb and forefinger loosely resemble a pecking chicken). Didn't you always wonder where the name came from?
I literally live on this in the summer when tomatoes are garden-ripe! I prefer this to cooked salsa, and I really load up on the cilantro. Of course, you can adjust the heat and any other ingredient as you wish, but this is the basic recipe. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
I don't know where I found this recipe but everyone really loves it. We can't go to any of our friends home without them asking us to bring it. We tend to use more jalapenos than it calls for but that's a matter of taste of course.
Here's a recipe for a crowd. The fresh taste of this salsa has flavor far and beyond that of commercially prepared salsas. You may wish to use a food processer to shorten preparation time. Recipe from N.C. Farm Bureau.
I used to love these when I was younger, I could eat two in one sitting! I haven't had fast food in a year or two, but these taste like I remember Taco Bell's quesadillas tasting. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
