  • 1 Roma tomato
  • 1/4 medium onion
  • 1/2 jalapeño *
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro
  • Juice from 1/4 lime (about 1 1/2 teaspoon juice)
  • Salt


With Immersion Blender Chopper

  • Very roughly chop tomato, onion, jalapeño, and cilantro. Place jalapeño, cilantro, and onion in the chopper first. Add tomato and lime juice over the top and process until pieces reach desired size. Be careful not to over-process the mixture, as you can easily liquify the tomatoes if you're not careful. Add salt to taste if desired.

By Hand

  • Finely chop tomato, onion, jalapeño, and cilantro. Combine in a small bowl and squeeze lime over the top. Stir everything together. Add salt to taste if desired.


*Remove jalapeño seeds for less heat.
I like my pico de gallo pretty green. You can cut the cilantro in half and replace it with another half a Roma tomato if you prefer more tomato.
