cha cha cha - ole'

I should really make a button or at least an image for these posts...
there is probably a lot I should do so lets not focus on that.
this week I made something that I love: Pico de Gallo
otherwise known as Authentic Mexican Salsa or delicious.
I absolutely love tomatoes, spicy food, and anything easy.
hopefully, you also enjoy the same things and you'll like this recipe.

Pico de Gallo [authentic mexican salsa]

what you need:

3 large tomatoes
1 medium onion
1/4 bunch of cilantro [I used less because I don't really like it that much, add as much as you like]
1/2 of a lemon for juicing
1 clove of garlic
2 jalapenos [I used three because I like it spicy, use as much as you like]


now make it:

1. wash all of your ingredients.  
I like to use a fruit and veggie wash because many pesticides [and other "outdoor things" don't come off with water alone.
2. dice tomatoes, onion, and jalapeno. mice garlic and chop cilantro.
3. put all of your ingredients into a bowl adding the juice from half of a lemon.
4. mix well and serve!

I made some tasty quesadillas to go with mine, but before they were done I also ate it with some tortilla chips.  this dish is very versatile and yummy with all sorts of different things.  you could put it on top of chicken, fish, or steak.  you could put it in an omelet or scrambled eggs. seriously guys, this shiz is good, and its only like 22 calories per serving [this recipe has 8 servings]. hell, eat the whole bowl for 176 calories!
