"This is by far the best pico I have ever had. Fresh cilantro and sweetened lime juice are key to making this recipe really delicious. You can find the lime juice in the aisle with margarita mixers and such. This makes a lot to feed a crowd!" — Rapinka82

diced roma tomatoes
1 1/2 pounds
diced red onion
jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
minced fresh cilantro
sweetened lime juice
taco seasoning mix
I cut this in recipe in half. Because I did NOT have fresh jalapeno, I substituted a couple tablespoons of mild diced green chilies. I also did not have sweetened lime juice, I added in a tablespoon of brown sugar for a bit of sweetness. Quite good.
I cut this recipe way back...and eyeballed the ingrediens a bit because of that. This is very simple, but then again that's the essence of pico de gallo. I used a homemade taco seasoning blend vs. a mix and opted for fresh lime juice, adding a little sugar for sweetness.
Great pico de gallo. I only used two roma tomatoes, a small white onion, a handful of fresh chopped cilatnro, some squirts of the bottled lime juice, and a sprinkle of the taco seasoning. Perfecto.... I used this to top some breakfast pizzas I made. YUM YUM.
not my favorite!
