Pico de Gallo Easy Traditional Recipe

This EASY fresh Pico de Gallo recipe is great with Fajitas or it can be served as an appetizer with corn tortilla chips. It tastes even better if prepared a bit in advance to set in the fridge for the flavors to meld, whether it's a couple of hours or overnight.

About This Pico de Gallo Easy Recipe

This recipe is so easy and simple to prepare the ingredients and mix them together, and you’re done! You can’t beat this authentic Pico de Gallo EASY recipe’s flavor and content over those in the grocery store. Most of them will mainly just have chopped tomatoes and onions. This has it all, yet it’s so simple to make, as you’ll discover.

You can even make this a day or two in advance. It goes best with fajitas and some use it with corn tortilla chips as an appetizer, like salsa. And some even add this to a pre-packaged salsa for enhancing the flavor. This is between mild and medium spicy so, for less spicy servings, reduce or omit the jalapeno pepper. Otherwise, it’s easily adjustable to also be hotter.
