Secret Spicy Pico

Sorry this picture is in no way perfection. I couldn't let this pico sit long enough without eating it to take a beautiful photo. So here it is. Just trust me, it's amazing. So amazing in fact, that I'm hesitant to give the recipe out! But i'm holding nothing back on this blog. So here it is. :)

Pico de Gallo
okay, this is just from my head, so feel free to mix up the proportions as you desire. Because that is what makes good pico in my opinion, depending on my mood I will do more or less of certain items. I'd like to thank my sister-in-law Denisse, and my Uncle Chris for inspiring this recipe. I used both of their recipes and Craig and I have put our own spin on them over the past couple of years.

1/2 white onion (chopped as small as possible)
1-2 jalapeno peppers (also chopped as small as possible)
1/2 Jabenero pepper (same thing-this one is optional for those of you that like it super spicy like we do)
3-4 Roma tomatoes (I cut these in half, squeeze out the juice, and chop them up really small)
2-3 avocados (peeled, cored, and chopped)
1/2-1 bushel of cilantro (chopped)
1 lime
1 TB garlic
a dash of salt

Cut onion and peppers small and place them in a medium sized bowl.
Add chopped tomatoes and avocado, then stir all ingredients with a fork until mixed well
Add chopped cilantro, garlic, salt, and squeeze the lime on top
Stir all ingredients, and serve with chips.

Super easy right? We almost always have all of these ingredients on hand so we can make this awesome pico!
