oh cilantro...

maybe i seem a little repetative, but i can't think of any good reason not to eat mexican food all the time!

we finally picked some of the cilantro in our garden & put it to good use in the pico de gallo when i made these nachos.

nachos is a meal at our house!



my pico de gallo


all fresh vegetables & cilantro:

tomatoes
onions
jalapenos
cilantro
lime juice
salt

note: this is not an exact science, so measurements are kind of/sort of:

chop up (kind of small) almost equal amounts of tomatoes & onions. (i use enough to make around a soupbowl size full container) add one jalapeno chopped up, remove the insides first, leave some seeds according to how hot you like it. a lot of seeds = very hot. no seeds = pretty much no heat. add a handful of cilantro chopped up fine, a splash of lime juice & salt to taste.

serve it fresh. enjoy it, it's an addiction!

um, YUM! Ok, now I have to swing by Shannan's for some pesto and past your house for some nachos! And you are right, there is nothing wrong with eating mexican food all the time!
