I love mexican food. Who doesn't? The chips, the spices, the spicy tomatoes doing their happy little dance with the cilantro, onions, jalapenos and their friends garlic, and salt and pepper! *Sigh* At our house, having hispanic food twice a week isn't out of the norm. We change it up from time to time but tacos, fajitas, enchiladas, flautas...we do it all. Along side these fiestas there's always a dip but my favorite by far, and the most healthy of options, is my pico de gallo. It's a must have topping-you can't have the chips without the dip, the cupcake without the sprinkles, the ice cream with no cone, come on now....get to choppin' and have some already!

Pico de Gallo

8-10 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1/2-1 red onion, chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

juice from one lime

1 T oil

4 T fresh cilantro, minced

1 t coarse salt

1/2 t pepper

Mix it all up and let sit for a while. Let the flavors meld and enjoy!
