Pico de Gallo Recipe

Last night we had some friends over to our home and we served Mexican food.  This consisted of tacos, taquitos, Mexican rice, refried beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, and all the other taco fixins’.  My friend asked for the pico de gallo recipe and I told her it was on my website. 

I checked today to give her the link and the recipe was no where to be found.  For those of you that know me, I wrote for another company for 3 1/2 years.  Apparently, I wrote the recipe on their site.  Oh well, just the issues that come with giving someone else the rights to your content. 

I hope you enjoy the recipe.  🙂


  • fresh diced tomatoes, preferably Roma tomatoes
  • fresh diced onions
  • fresh finely sliced cilantro (leaf and stalk)
  • fresh diced jalapeno pepper (to make milder,  remove seeds)
  • minced garlic or garlic powder
  • lime juice
  • Goya adobo seasoning
  • salt (optional)

Chop up fresh ingredients and place into bowl.  Add seasonings.  There are not specific measurements.  As you can see in the picture, the main ingredient is fresh tomatoes.  All the other ingredients are according to your taste preferences.  Let me know if you have any questions.

*Update:  After thinking about the pico de gallo it seems that we use about 6-8 Roma tomatoes, 1 medium onion, 1 jalapeno, and about 1/2 stalk of cilantro.  I’d say you need to use 1 tbsp or less of  lime juice.  These are the issues that come with not using a recipe and just cooking until something looks or tastes good.
