Pico de Gallo

“Pico de Gallo” means “Rooster’s Beak” in Spanish, which begs the question; why? Why such a funny name for delicious, fresh, spicy, crunchy perfection? Perhaps it was one of those one-or-two-too-many Margaritas moments. Perhaps the original of this dish really did look like chopped up beaks. Whatever the reason, this is a favourite go-to addition to any Tex-Mex dish or BBQ.
