Here’s an easy pico de gallo recipe that takes no time to make – from prep to table setting in less than 20 minutes. That’s a lot of flavor in such a short amount of time. We love this salsa fresca as a spicy side dish. (A great alternative to Jane’s simple salad.) And it’s super delicious compared to tacos, burritos, and other Mexican dishes.
Jalapeños are used in this recipe and give the salsa just the right amount of spiciness. Jalapeños have 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHUs). If you want to add a simple pico de gallo, consider upgrading the heat to chili serrano. The spiciness has obviously increased. Usually twice as hot (S$10,000 to SHU), you can also explore spicier varieties, though the pungent flavors of both grassy jalapeno and green peppers pair well with the garden-fresh flavors of the salsa. this

If you want enough spiciness for the flavor, leave it in the fridge for a few hours before serving. This is a quick appetizer that you can make in the morning to prepare for your afternoon get-togethers.

In a mixing bowl, mix the diced tomatoes, onion, and jalapenos.
Mix coriander, lemon juice and salt mix well.
Cover and deflate for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, pour excess liquid out of the bowl.
If you prefer a more aromatic pico de gallo flavor, add a teaspoon of lemon juice to soften the pico de gallo. Scrape the jalapenos and remove the membrane before dicing. That’s where most of the heat in the jalapeno comes from. For hotter pico de gallo Try using serranos instead of jalapenos. Serrano peppers can be 9 times hotter than the mildest jalapeno.
