Classic Pico de Gallo & Guacomole

Cooking 4 Fun - Pico de Gallo & Guacamole

This is not a contest entry, just a standard in my life worth sharing. A classic pico de gallo and the simplest guacamole. All the best summer has to offers in a bowl. I make big batches of both and just eat it with tortilla chips. Love this stuff!

Pico de Gallo

3 Big Fresh Tomatoes
2 Fresh Tomotillos
Big Bunch Fresh Cilantro chopped maybe 1/2 cup, really as much as you want, I like lots of cilantro!
1 Medium Onion Chopped
1 Jalepeno seeds removed and chopped small
Juice from 1/2 a Lemon
Splash of Olive Oil
Salt to taste

Chop all ingredients small and mix well. The qualities can be changed to meet your taste or based on what is super fresh and available. One of those recipes where simpler is better!


2-3 large ripe avocados
1 clove minced garlic - maybe 1/2 clove if it is big
Big dash Kosher salt
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 small tomato - Roma is best, chopped small

Mash avocado in a bowl with a fork. Add garlic, salt, lemon juice and mash till smooth and well mixed. Stir in chopped tomato. Enjoy! Simple is best.

A heaping bunch of fresh ingredients.

Bowl of Guac. Bowl of Pico. Where are the chips!?!
