A fun spin on a classic Pico de Gallo recipe. Great with tortilla chips or on your tacos. Either way it's delicious.
Many people believe that Pico de Gallo and Salsa are one and the same. Traditionally a Pico is a “rough chop” while a Salsa is pureed.
While Pico and Salsas often share the same ingredients, it’s really up to you which consistency you are looking for.
This Pico De Gallo recipe is an easy way to make classic Pico. A handful of ingredients and a sharp knife and Voila!
Technically you can use whatever kind of tomatoes you want but I’ve always found it a bit easier to use Roma tomatoes when making a Pico. Just my personal preference. You should go ahead and experiment a bit and make it to your liking.
As with any recipe that calls for avocadoes, selecting the right avocado is key to a great tasting dish. Basically you want a perfectly ripe Avocado. This is a great article on how to select the perfect avocado.

Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
