    gailanng's Note:

    A Canyon Cafe recipe. Note: Pico de gallo is a combination of chopped fresh tomatoes, cilantro, onions, garlic and peppers to taste. Add a splash of lime juice and a dash of salt. If you don't have time to make pico de gallo, substitute chopped fresh tomatoes. This topping adds tremendously to the finished dish.
