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.  

  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! Fresh roma tomatoes.

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!

  • I would drop sauce and control heat with a combo of capsicum and serrano peppers, your recipe is very close to restaurant, but actual pico is made with serranos and sometimes a mild chili, which is why i suggest capsicum. adding a cooked product (the hot sauce) destroys the fresh garden taste of the pico di gallo. We all have our proclivities, cook as you will and let that be the whole of the law, but I make mine with tomato, onion, serrano, cilantro, lime juice and salt. That is it. I find the jalapeno to be a distracting flavor as well, the serranos are perfect for the balance.
