I am a lazy cook. I enjoy
eating cooking, but don’t have 2 hours to chop veggies or make sauces from scratch. So, I am all about the Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade style of cooking. I realize you should be careful with this since convenience foods can add unnecessarily processed ingredients into your meal. Yes, I know everything.
But sometimes they are just that – convenient!
I use jarred salsa for enchiladas, crockpot salsa chicken, mixing it with beans and more!
And pico de gallo opens a whole new set of possibilities. It’s basically just finely chopped tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Sometimes it has jalapenos. I could never chop veggies this finely so I feel like this is fancier than my big ol’ chunks of tomato.
Most of the time I use ready made pico de gallo for my guacamole too! I will never be able to dice veggies that fine (without a trip to the emergency room) so it’s extra helpful for a dish where you need teeny tiny pieces.
Today is National Tequila Day – are you celebrating?
Got any good uses for pico de gallo to share?
