Pico De Gallo is also called Salsa Fresca. It is the easiest Salsa that you can easily make at home with only a handful of ingredients. It taste so fresh and tangy and so worth all the chopping you will be doing!
We make it at home as a Salsa dip for corn chips. And Pico De Gallo is always a side dish when we make Mexican Carne Asada or Tacos.
I usually prefer to use Roma tomatoes to make my Pico De Gallo Salsa. If you use another type of tomato, you may want to consider removing some of the seed/juicy part of the tomato. Otherwise, your Salsa becomes to watery. That is why I prefer using Roma tomatoes since they are not as juicy as beef tomatoes or other types.
In my video, I remove the seeds from the jalapeño peppers since the rest of the family doesn’t eat as spicy as I do. So, if you like some more heat, feel free to leave in the seeds. Or even better, add some hot thai chili peppers if you like it super hot!
Once you taste the fresh and tangy flavors of homemade Pico De Gallo Salsa, you won’t want to go back to store bought anymore. Give it a try and have fun with it!
