Pico de gallo

Also called salsa fresca, this condiment brings freshness and heat to tex-mex food.
It's 'similar' to the commercial salsa you buy at the supermarket, only it tastes less like preservatives and ass.
This stuff is also unbelievably easy to make. Seriously.

3 medium tomatoes
1/2 small onion
Some sort of hot pepper. obviously jalapenos are popular cause they're 'meatier' and not too hot. I used birds eye chilis cause thats what's in the garden.
4 or 5 sprigs of fresh cilantro (leave this out if you're one of the poor bastards with the gene that makes it taste like soap)
juice of one lime
More salt than you would think is necessary

Dice the tomatoes and onion. If you've got jalapenos dice them too. If you've got a tinier chili, chop them even smaller. Rip the cilantro leaves off of the sprigs and rock your knife across the leaves to chop them up a bit, then throw them in. Add more salt than you would deem necessary. Roll the lime to bust the juice capsules then shank it like an inmate and squeeze it in.

Achievement unlocked: You just made some pico de gallo.
