  • 5 Large Tomatoes, Seeded and Chopped
  • 1/2 Large Red or White Onion, Chopped
  • 1-2 Jalapenos, Diced
  • 1-2 Tabelspoons Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 Large Lime
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder, (Optional)


  • Add the chopped and seeded tomatoes, chopped onion, diced jalapeno, and chopped cilantro to a medium sized bowl.
  • Slice the lime in half and squeeze the juice of the whole lime into the bowl over the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle the vegetable mixture with the salt and garlic powder.  Stir well to combine. For best flavor, chill for 1-2 hours before serving if possible.
  • Serve with chips, tacos, burritos, chicken, or any of your other favorite dishes.  Store in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 7 days.


NOTE:  I like to use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic in this recipe so that it doesn't overwhelm the other ingredients.  However, you can add 1-2 cloves of fresh garlic if that's your preference.
NOTE:  Pico de gallo is good stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
