Duo of Dips: Part 1 - Pico de Gallo

Pico De Gallo is one of the most versatile condiments around. it is good along, on fish, chicken and so much more.

Together with guacamole, they are toppings for my Chicken Nachos recipe which will be posted soon.

First up is the Pico de Gallo, a super simple dip made from fresh tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime juice.  When trying to turn my process into a recipe I realized, while it is very easy to make it is not as easy to turn into an actual method.  This due to difference yields and flavors you get from the limes and tomato respectively.
