Jamie’s pico de gallo

This is my version of pico de gallo…

Had some tomatoes and I didn’t want them to go bad, so I decided to make some salsa…

Start with 2 tomatoes, I also had 2 Roma tomatoes I added, but forgot to take a picture

Then take 2 jalapenos

cut them in half and de seed one Jalapeno and leave one half with seeds. You can leave all seeds in, if you like your salsa spicy, I like a little heat so I left the seeds in, one half.

stir really well to make sure all ingredients are well incorporated. then get a chip and taste to make sure flavor is good…It will be very tangy from the zest and lime juice and lemon juice so be ready! (I LOVE TANGY)

Adjust seasoning if you need too. You can eat the salsa right away. Or let it sit in the fridge and the longer you let it sit the better the flavor gets…
