Tx Style Pico De Gallo (Homemade Salsa)

I don't like the stuff that comes out of jars too much so I came up with this! Anyone can make it! This is a traditional Tex-Mex recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put tomatoes in container with garlic, onion, and jalapenos and stir together. If using the jar jalapenos add a little splash of juice from jar of jalapeno slices.
  2. Squirt lime juice on and stir. Add cilantro.
  3. Add salt, pepper, and any other seasonings to taste. Refrigerate and let "marinate" for a little while for flavors to incorporate. Enjoy!

Fantastic Salsa!!! Quick and easy to make. I added 2 med avocadoes and served over lime grilled chicken and used the leftovers for nachos the next day!! Lasts really well and tastes fantastic! I don't think I'll ever be able to eat jarred salsa again!

Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game 2013 and what a hit. I followed the instructions using a fresh jalapeno (leaving a few seeds in for heat...oh yes, this jalapeno was warm) and fresh cilantro. Delicious!!! I used this on recipe#120653#120653 and what was left over was used with fresh toasted tortilla chips. Thank you for posting.

So good, fresh, and easy! I made it exactly as written. Sometimes cilantro can be overwhelming. I actually prefer dried for pico de gallo.
