Pico Pico

Tonight, we are watching the superbowl together as a family.  It is so fun to make and eat yummy game food, and tonight I am making some stupendous nachos.  Here is a step by step delicious recipe for Pico De Gallo.  All you need to do is chop.  You need four tomatoes, one onion, one jalepeno, some chopped parsley (or cilantro), and some salt.

 I start by cutting the ends off the tomatoes and squeezing them over the sink to get rid of the seeds.  Then, chop the tomatoes, and place them in the bowl. 

Next, chop the onion and place it in the bowl.

Then, wearing gloves, seed and chop the jalepeno and add it.

Then, chop the parsley and add it.

Next, add the salt. ( I like to keep mine in a fun bowl)


Look how pretty it is.  Let it sit in the fridge covered until you are ready to use it.
 Ok, now to make some yummy nachos to go with this.  Brown some beef, onion, garlic and jalepeno, and add some taco seasoning (or if you don't have some, put some salt, pepper, sugar, chili powder, and cumin).  Put this mix on some tortilla chips on an oven safe dish.  Sprinkle with some sharp cheddar or pepperjack, and bake in the oven at 350 until the cheese melts.  Top with the pico de gallo, some avocado or guac, olives, sour cream or whatever suits your needs.  Maybe you could set everything out and let people choose.  Enjoy the game.



  1. This looks wonderful...I love this stuff! ♥ Love your salt dish, too!!

  2. My salt dish is a remnant from my Halloween Decor (there are free printables on for the poison labels). I did blog about it around Halloween if you want to check it out. Spooky stuff! Thank you for the nice comments. I can't wait to see what you are up to next.
