  • 4 Roma tomatoes deseeded and diced
  • 2/3 cup white onion finely diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper or jalapeño finely chopped
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Once you have prepared all the ingredients, add them to a bowl and thoroughly mix together.
  • If you can wait 15 minutes to let all the flavors meld together, that's best. But if you can't wait to dig in, I completely understand. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!



  • This recipes makes 3 cups of pico de gallo.
  • Serve it up with corn tortilla chips or my favorite Siete brand cassava tortilla chips (they're gluten-free, grain-free and corn-free).
