    Default Pico de Gallo seasoning

    Does anyone have a recipe for making Pico De Gallo spice mix...not the
    fresh salsa?
    I have been" googling" and can't find one.

    Spice mix? I know pico de gallo as a condiment/relish/salsa kind of
    thing, not a spice mix. Can you describe more fully what you have in
    mind? -aem

    I think this is what she's talking about. It's a dry spice blend
    that's typically sprinkled on fruits and vegetables.
    http://i41.tinypic.com/rj1cv9.jpg

    It's made from ground or powdered chili, not to be confused with chili
    powder, and salt and some citrus like lime or lemon mainly in the form
    of citric acid.

    This blend has some course ground black pepper in it also.
    Unfortunately I didn't save the label. I bought it from one of those
    hanging spice racks but it is also available in containers.

    For years I had never heard of pico de gallo in a salsa form, I had
    always known it in the dry form.


    hope this helps I'm still looking for the recipe to make some. I love
    challenges.

    I think ground guajillo chiles were what Rick Bayless used on fruit when
    I went to Topo.

    Here's what I found. I would add a little powdered lime or lemon to it
    though but that's just my taste.

    20 piquín chiles OR de Árbol, wiped clean with a cloth, stems removed
    1/2 cup salt

    Dry roast chiles over medium heat in skillet until fragrant, about 5-8
    minutes. Set aside to cool completely.

    Transfer chiles to spice grinder and grind to a fine powder. Mix well
    with salt. Keep in an airtight container.

    Is this what you're talking about? http://mifiesta.com/fta10001.html
    I have a bottle in my cupboard. The Web page's list of ingredients is
    ground chili peppers, salt, dehydrated lemon juice. My bottle lists
    lime, not lemon on the label. I don't know what sort of peppers they
    use, but it isn't very hot.

    You're kidding! I'd never heard fresh salsa called Pico de Gallo
    until I came to rfc.

    The pico de gallo I grew up with, resembles salsa without the juice.
    Maybe that is a Texas thang.

    It seems to have a lot of meanings, depending where in the US or Mexico
    you are, but it seems the OP wants what is in the second paragraph of
    the above Wiki entry, a salty chile (not to be confused with chili)
    powder. I just use Tony Chachere's instead:

    Here's a pretty simple recipe.


    2 cups diced ripe tomatoes

    1 cup diced purple onion

    6 to 10 jalapeno peppers finely chopped

    3 cloves garlic finely chopped

    2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

    2 tablespoons salt



    No exotic spices and it works.



    Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for several hours before serving.

    Keeps several days in the refrigerator.



    Variations

    1 tablespoon lime juice

    1 habanero

    1 cup sweet corn

    We just mix powdered chile with lemon pepper (which contains salt
    anyway). Have never seen powdered lime though; must have a look.

    Pico de Gallo means something about a "rooster". Around here it's like
    salsa cruda - everything is raw and there's very little liquid. It's
    not like something that you'd dip something in but more like a relish
    you spoon on. It ALWAYS shows up with fajitas.

    It means beak of the rooster. And the tomato/jalapeno/lime salsa is
    one kind. But there is another: a salad of jicama and mango, for
    example, dusted with chiles and salt.

    Maybe True Lime. I find it a bit sweet though.
