I made my pico de gallo through trial and error so please, use this recipe loosely to find a combination that you love.


  • 4 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1 lime, freshly juiced
  • salt, to taste


  1. Cut tomatoes in half and squeeze out juice and seeds.
  2. In food processor, separately process tomatoes, green pepper, red onion, and cilantro until desired texture is reached.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together tomatoes, about 1/4 cup green pepper, 1/4 of red onion, 1/4 cup cilantro, garlic, jalapeno peppers, lime juice, and 1/4 tsp salt.
  4. Taste mixture.  Add additional green peppers, onion, cilantro, and salt to obtain desired flavor.
