Forget store bought! You can make your own Fresh, Easy Pico de Gallo From Scratch with just a few simple ingredients and less than 10 minutes!
Guys. How have I not shared this recipe with you before?! It's shameful! This Pico de Gallo From Scratch is a staple in our house. Staple like we make a big batch of it almost every single week. Have you ever looked at the ingredient list of pre-made picos and salsas in the store and noticed the sugar that's added to it? Bah. So unnecessary. Instead, you can just make your own at home with simple, fresh, healthy ingredients.
Fresh roma tomatoes. Fresh cilantro. Fresh jalapeno. Fresh red onion. Fresh lime juice. Topped with a little salt and hot sauce. Are you getting my drift here? If you guessed "fresh," ding ding ding! Seriously. Less than 10 minutes to this super fresh Pico de Gallo From Scratch. Does it get any easier than that?
Add this to your Sunday meal prep and then you'll be all set for your weeknight Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Tacos, Crock Pot Chicken Carnitas Tacos, Crock Pot Pork Verde, or even just to snack on with some homemade crackers or tortilla chips! I often top salad greens with pico, some avocado, sour cream, and some cheese and make myself a super easy, super healthy vegetarian salad. Boom. Easy. Fresh. Healthy.
However you eat it, you wont be disappointed - except of course with how blah all of the store bought pico will taste to you from now on!
