Duo of Dips: Pico de Gallo – Part 1

Post Contents

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

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

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, it is not as easy to turn into an actual method.  This due to the different yields and flavors you get from the limes and tomato respectively.

I’m the Tay behind Tay’s Bi-Polar Kitchen. I started this blog to share my kitchen and mental health wellness journey. I want to show people they are not alone in their struggles, combat the stigma associated with mental disorders, and be open and honest about their mental health. In my opinion, these three issues stand as barriers to seeking treatment. If this website inspires someone to move closer to mental health wellness for themselves or another, my work has been done.

Welcome to my table; I hope you say a while.
