How To Make Pico De Gallo – Easy Recipe

These are truly the best homemade soft flour tortillas. These come out so chewy and pliable which makes folding them into a taco, so easy. This recipe makes 16 tortillas and only takes about 30 minutes. Plus, we had all the ingredients on hand and now I don’t think I’ll ever run to the store to buy tortillas again!

Just a few common household ingredients like tomato, red onion, lime, and not pictured is cilantro, salt, and black pepper.

Step 1:

If you’re using cherry tomatoes as I did, slice them into fourths. I like slicing them longways. Mainly for the aesthetics of it lol. If you’re using any other regular tomato, go ahead and dice them up.

Step 2:

Slice and dice your red onion and add them to the tomatoes. I like extra onion in mine!

Step 3:

Next, add the zest of one whole lime directly over the bowl. Slice the lime in half and squeeze half a lime worth of juice.

Step 4:

Mix and add in some chopped cilantro, salt, and pepper to taste. You can also opt for jalapeño in this recipe! I had some Corn Salsa with this meal that already had jalapeños in it, so I wanted to keep this pico de gallo recipe a bit mild.
