Pico De Gallo
This is a simple condiment that’s dead easy and marvelously delicious and full of flavor. If you don’t like cilantro, then you’ll need to skip this one, because the cilantro really makes it. I know people who think they absolutely hate cilantro, but this topping appeals because it is so light, fresh, and tart with lime.
½ yellow onion, coarsely chopped
½-1 C. fresh cilantro, chopped
1 whole lime, juiced
Few pinches of ground chipotle pepper powder
Few pinches of kosher salt
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and let stand for 15 -30 minutes. Serve as a topping for any Latin-style or Tex-Mex dish, or as a simple uncooked sauce added to rice, eggs dishes, or potatoes.
