The BEST Pico de Gallo via Biddy Talk

“I have had this feeling for a while now and try to make my own salsa whenever possible, but finally the other night, I bought enough ingredients to use with dinner and to have a full jar of homemade salsa to enjoy later. I suppose it’s more of a pico de gallo because I love chunky salsa (and guacamole for that matter too!) so there was no use of a food processor- just a lot of chopping! If you like it a little less chunky, a pulse or two in the food processor would be perfect.”

  • 6 tomatoes
  • 3 jalapenos (warning: hot)
  • 1 medium white onion
  • ½ a medium red onion
  • 1 cup cilantro (I’m a fiend- so a little less if you aren’t)
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 3 limes juiced (I even threw in some of the pulp)
  • 1 tsp sea salt (More can always be added but not taken away!)
  • 1 tsp chili powder


  • 1 cup (2-3 ears) of grilled/pan fried corn. If pan frying it, try putting in 3 tbsps of pineapple juice and 2 tbsp EVOO. Since you are using pans now, I would probably add the garlic, salt, ½ the cilantro, cumin and chili powder now.
  • Sweeten it up with some diced fruit of your choice- pineapple, mango, peach etc.
