Pico de Gallo - recipe
Matthew L. Schoonover’s Pico de Gallo
Contibutor's Note: Pico de Gallo means “beak of the rooster” in Spanish and as you eat this spicey sauche you will feel the rooster peck your lips, your tongue, your throat, and all the way down. A delightful discomfort indeed.
2 large tomatoes (do not use Romano tomatoes), diced
1 twined bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
1 large onion (yellow or white, your choice), finely diced, not minced
2 to 4 Serrano peppers (with or without seeds, per your own tastebuds), finely chopped
mix everything together
Juice of half a lime or lemon, squeezed over concoction - er, I mean ingredients
Serve with corn tortilla chips, or over assorted foods of your liking.
(Personally, I enjoy it with Spanish rice.)
