The Spanish name for this salsa means "rooster's beak," and originally referred to a salad of jicama, peanuts, oranges, and onions. But today, whether you're in Minneapolis or Mexico City, if you ask for pico de gallo, you'll get the familiar cilantro-flecked combination of chopped tomato, onion, and fresh chiles. This tart, crisp condiment (also known as salsa Mexicana) has become so common on Mexican tables that it seems like no coincidence that its colors match those of the national flag. Besides finding firm ripe tomatoes and seeding them, the key to this salsa is adding plenty of lime juice and salt, and not skimping on the chiles. Because without a burst of acidity and heat, you're just eating chopped tomatoes.


Just finished preparing this and it turned out awesome! I basically took the original recipe and eyeball quadrupled it. Honestly the easiest recipe ever. My food processor wasn’t big enough so I did it in batches and stirred it all up in a mixing bowl. The apple cider vinegar cuts the acidity and the lime brings out all of the fresh flavors. The salt makes it all come together. Thanks.
It’s easy to make either a coarse salsa with just a knife and chopping board - alternatively, for a smooth salsa, whizz the ingredients in a food processor. Serve salsa with tortilla chips and dips such as guacamole or soured cream, or use it as a sauce or for topping pasta or pizza. Fruit salsas made with mango or pineapple go well with grilled fish or chicken.

Simple, fresh and easy to make. A winning Mexican restaurant style salsa prepared with plum tomatoes, onion cilantro, and serrano peppers. Fresh tomatoes, not canned, star in this recipe. In Mexico, it is known as salsa roja (red sauce) or salsa de mesa (table sauce). And just like in the U.S., it is served in every restaurant before your meal with tortilla chips.


Pica media cebolla o una entera para darle al queso un sabor picante suave. Corta los extremos de la cebolla con un cuchillo de cocina y pon el lado plano hacia abajo sobre una tabla de cortar. Luego, córtala por la mitad a lo largo y retira la cáscara. Coloca una mitad boca abajo sobre la tabla de cortar y verifica que el extremo de la raíz esté apuntando hacia el lado opuesto a ti. Sostén el lado izquierdo con tu mano izquierda y haz cortes verticales en la cebolla, desplazándote de arriba hacia abajo y dejando una porción pequeña sin cortar. A continuación, gira la mitad de la cebolla a 90 grados y córtala de arriba a abajo, avanzando de derecha a izquierda.[4]

I’m so glad I found this recipe… again! I made this last Christmas to satisfy the munchies between our typical heavy breakfast and heavy dinner. Everyone gobbled it up so fast, no one was hungry at dinner time. This has been at the top of the request list for our family Christmas this year, and because it’s so addictive, everyone voted to have this queso AS the evening meal, instead of the appetizer. That’s saying a lot considering we usually go all out with our Christmas dinners. This will be in our extended family meal rotation from now on. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

This is a great salsa for beginners in Mexican cuisine. There are other salsas that are a little bit more complicated, and which require that you char the tomatoes and other veggies first. This salsa roja recipe, however, just requires that you blend the raw vegetables together, and then cook them with a bit of olive oil before adding onions and cilantro. 
Today's post, however, is an easier version of my roasted salsa recipe that can be made in a fraction of the time by using good quality canned fire roasted green chiles and tomatoes. That way you get the fire roasted flavor and skip the time it takes to do your own roasting and peeling. Everything gets chopped in the food processor or blender, so it goes together really quickly.
I'm on the hunt for an out-of-this-world pico de gallo recipe. While this was not it, this will be my go-to base recipe for the time being. Fresh and good. Make sure to drain as much liquid from the tomatoes as possible during seeding and chopping. Let the lime juice and seasonings stand out by eliminating tomato liquid completely. Day 2 the flavor was still good in our case.
Just made this to top with your crock pot chicken tacos, I’m in HEAVEN. This salsa is so quick to put together and the flavor is incredible. I use one can of Original Rotel and one of the mild. I always keep sliced jalapeños in a jar in my fridge so I threw in a couple of those for some heat and you’re right, tastes WAY better than a restaurant. I’m going to make another batch for this weekend!
La historia del queso no sería lo que hoy conocemos sin los romanos. Ellos fueron los primeros productores de queso a gran escala. Incluso en las dumus romanas grandes tenían una salas separadas para hacer el queso. Los romanos envejecían el queso o lo ahumaban. Eran métodos para lograr que este alimento se pudiera comer durante más tiempo. Proteínas que siempre solían llevar entre sus provisiones los ejércitos romanos.

I’m a “transplant” from Wisconsin currently living in Texas. Even after 20 years, I can’t get enough of our wonderful local citrus. This is one way to work it into a main dish. The combination of tangy fruit, spicy jalapeno and distinctive cilantro is perfect over any meat, poultry or fish. We also dip into it with chips. —Lois Kildahl, McAllen, Texas

¿Cómo la elaboramos? Se hace igual que si hiciésemos una bechamel, añadimos un trozo de mantequilla a la sartén (o una cucharada de aceite), cuando haya fundido y esté caliente añadimos una o dos cucharadas de harina, removemos bien y cuando haya tostado un poco le adicionamos una taza de leche y removemos para que vaya espesando. A continuación le echamos el queso y un poco de sal (podemos añadirle también alguna especie) y una vez este haya fundido lo sacamos del fuego y listo para dipear. ¿Verdad que os viene a la cabeza unos deliciosos nachos con guacamole y esta maravillosa salsa…?

Salsa is any one of several sauces typical of Mexican cuisine, also known as salsa fresca, hot salsa or salsa picante, particularly those used as dips. Salsa is often tomato-based, and includes ingredients such as onions, chilies, an acid and herbs. It is typically piquant, ranging from mild to extremely hot. Though many different sauce preparations are called salsa in Spanish, in English, it generally refers to raw or near-raw sauces used as dips.
