BETTER THAN CHIPOTLE PICO DE GALLO
Okay, so I know these are grand claims – trust me, I’m a huge (yuuuuge) Chipotle fan. But something I’ve realized over time is homemade is always better. I don’t know if it’s the beauty of knowing where your ingredients are from, handling them yourself and being able to make special touches based on your taste, but this pico de gallo recipe is one of my favourites and is easy to personalize.
Case in point – the boyfriend hates cilantro, so that would be why the green bits in there are actually parsley! Yes, after some experimenting I realized that while cilantro and parsley have much different tastes, parsley actually completely works in pico de gallo and other mexican-inspired meals. If you have a picky cilantro eater, try replacing with parsley to still get that green kick!
Pair this recipe with chips like in the picture, or pair it with fajitas/tacos, nachos, top a salad or steak – this really is a super versatile side that tastes a bit more perked up than your usual grocery store salsa.
