"Sometimes when you eat authentic Mexican food, they give you this salsa stuff made with tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos. You can add a squeeze of lime juice to pico de gallo, but I prefer this basic recipe. Once you serve this with your Mexican dish such as tacos, you will want it with all your Mexican dishes!"

The recipe is basic, it's not terrible, but you can add more to make it taste a lot better the authentic way. And I'm sorry but the picture you have up looks more like a mango salsa than pico de...

Very good, but needed a little tweaking. First of all, 2 sprigs of cilantro is not NEARLY enough for my family. I used 2 tablespoons of cilantro, chopped in the food processor. I also only used ...

A very good recipe indeed. I would suggest adding fresh lime juice to taste. Also, word to the wise: When working with fresh jalepenos, always wear protective gloves if you don't want the juic...

This is a good basic pico de gallo. However my family likes more cilantro flavor, so I used a half bunch and added fresh lime juice and minced garlic, rather than powder. Yummy with chips, tacos...
