Mexican food has always been my favorite kind of cuisine, but I never really liked spicy foods. However, the last few years I’ve developed a taste for jalapenos and red peppers in moderation. I don’t want my lips and tongue to go numb, but I don’t mind if they tingle a bit. 🙂 My favorite kind of “salsa” is a simple pico de gallo, sometimes called salsa fresca. Last night for dinner I made delicious carne asada street tacos and topped them with this quick and easy pico de gallo.
The beauty of this recipe is its simplicity. Tortilla, meat, pico. The end. It’s easy to polish off half a dozen of these babies. My husband insisted on putting cheese all over his, but I’m a purist. (OK, I had one with cheese and it was pretty amazing, so you might want to try it that way, too.) 🙂
My carne asada recipe requires just a few spices, a cheap cut of beef and a hot grill. You can also check out my grilled pineapple salsa while you’re there. It’s pretty awesome. 🙂 But don’t get distracted-you’re here for the pico de gallo recipe, remember?
