This is a recipe I regularly make, mostly in the summertime, when tomatoes are freshest. It goes great with bean and cheese burritos, rice, beans, and cheese, or tacos. It is also a great side dish for meat and fish entrees. Chop and mix together the following:
4 Roma or Plum Tomatoes, seeded
¼ small white onion
1 serrano or jalapeno chili pepper
1 Tbsp whole cilantro leaves
½ tsp sugar
½ tsp salt
juice from ¼ of a lime
optional: pinch of oregano and pinch of cumin
As you may remember from an my first post on frugal kitchen investments, I mentioned that I received $40 of Kohls’ Cash for buying a bread machine last year. At that same time “The Ninja Master Prep Professional Triple Play” was on sale for $45. It was and still is rated as a Consumer Reports Best Buy.
Combining the Kohls Cash and 30% off coupon, I got the Ninja Master Blender Set for $4.00. Couponing rocks!!
With this new blender, Pico de Gallo is even easier to make. I highly recommend it. Enjoy this recipe, with or without the blender!
