Pico de Gallo and Guacamole

Here is a fresh, tasty, quick and easy Pico de Gallo and Guacamole that I normally make every time I cook Mexican Food.  One time, I even combined the guacamole and pico de gallo together and made a Super Guacamole. The pico de gallo and guacamole can be served as appetizers or as condiments for the meal. 

For my pico de gallo recipe, I used Roma tomatoes because it is less watery than regular tomatoes.  I don’t like too much liquid in my pico de gallo.  I also used white onions in this recipe, but yellow onions work fine.  

Pico de Gallo Ingredients:
3 Roma tomatoes diced
1/4 large white onion diced
1 jalapeno diced
1-2 teaspoons cilantro chopped

  4. Mix ingredients together and serve.
