Recipe instructions Pico de Gallo

1

Chop the tomatoes into small pieces. Put them in a bowl with the onions, cilantro, and garlic. Set aside.

2

Cut the jalapeno in half lengthwise, using a sharp knife. Remove the seeds and white membrane with a spoon (keep some membrane if you prefer it spicy). Dice the jalapeno finely and add it to the bowl.

3

Cut the lemon in half and squeeze its juice over the contents of the bowl.

4

Then, sprinkle some salt and pepper, stir everything well (observing that some of the juices are coming out), taste and adjust it according to your preferences.

5

Finally, serve with chips and enjoy.

To avoid extreme spiciness, begin with only one jalapeno and add more based on your taste preferences at the end. Keep in mind that removing the seeds and membrane can help reduce the heat.

Tuscan Soup is a rich, creamy, and tasty soup made with Italian sausage, potatoes, and kale. As one of my favorite soups, I am happy to share its recipe. I used to go to a restaurant to taste this scrumptious soup, but then I learned to make it myself. Soon, my homemade soup was even more delectable than the restaurant's version.
