Pico with Pizazz!

With fresh tomatoes at every Farmer's Market - it's time to make Pico de Gallo.   We love this zesty condiment on almost everything we eat.    Chopped tomatoes, sweet onion, jalapenos, cilantro and lime juice... then I add a special secret ingredient to throw a spin on a simple recipe to add a bit of pizazz!

Pico de Gallo with Pizazz

Ingredients:
  • 6 medium fresh tomatoes, seeded, cored and chopped
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 jalapenos, seeded and minced
  • 1 large bunch cilantro, rinsed and minced
  • 2 T fresh lime juice
  • 2 T tequila
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Directions:   Wash your ingredients well and dry.   Combine all the chopped/minced ingredients in a large bowl, stirring to incorporate.   Add lime juice, tequila, salt and pepper and taste to see if you need to add additional seasoning.   Serve with chip (I love blue corn tortilla chips), on a salad, as a side to grilled steak or chicken.   Delicious!
