Pico de Gallo

Notes

Recipe Notes

  • No serrano pepper? Use a jalapeño pepper or other spicy pepper.
  • Chop the leaves and stems of cilantro; all parts are flavorful.
  • The spiciness of peppers can vary based on the growing conditions. Peppers usually have a higher level of heat during hot summer months.
