My passion of food started at a young age. I’ve always been immediately attracted to anything having to do with recipes, menu planning, food styling, or funky food fusions. I am constantly craving more knowledge to make me better at what I do. So, whenever I get a chance to see a pro in their ‘natural habitat’ I take it. It’s always fun to learn some new recipes, but it’s nice to see how it’s done from a pro and the techniques they love to use.

- 1 C Chopped Tomato
- 1 C Chipped Red Onion
- 1/4 C Chopped Cilantro
- 1 Chopped Jalapeno (no seeds)
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- Juice of 1 Lime
- 4 Ripe Avocados
- Mix all ingredients together except for the avocado. Season with salt and pepper. This is your Pico de gallo, a raw tomato salsa. When ready to serve, cut the avocado in half, remove the seed and scoop the flesh out with a spoon. Mash with a fork. Combine salsa with the mashed avocado and season to taste.
- Serve with crispy tortilla chips, in my case sweet potato chips or soft corn tortillas.
