Last night we had a charity event in which everyone brings snacks. I didn't want to mess with bringing a crockpot and dealing with a hot dish so I decided to bring the Pioneer Woman's guacamole. As a base, though, she uses pico de gallo. Here is her recipe.
Here's what you'll need:
Dice up equal parts onion and tomato.
Cut and de-seed a jalapeno. Dice up 1/2 of it.
Finely mince fresh cilantro. Use enough to match the onion and tomato.
Squeeze 1/2 of a lime and mix.
Sprinkle in some coarse salt and here's what you'll end up with:
This pico is so simple yet so tasty. It is versatile and a little goes along way. I didn't have the onions as uniformly cut as I would have liked so I had to go back through and pick out some larger pieces to cut up again.
I will definitely make this recipe over and over. Perfect for summer.
Hope you enjoy!
