Pico De Gallo is a mexican relish made with fresh ingredients, similar to fresh salsa. It’s delicious as a topping on any fajita or burrito.

Ingredients

  • Pico De Gallo:3 tomatoes, red ripe, chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 Tbs cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 jalapeno chile pepper, finely chopped
  • Fajita:1 lb flank steak, uncooked
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 6 flour tortillas, (10-inch diameter)

Directions

  • Prepare Pico De Gallo: Combine tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, lemon juice and jalapeno in a small bowl. Gently mix together. Set aside.
  • Preheat grill or broiler.
  • Sprinkle both sides of steak with cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place steak on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and cook 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
  • While steak is cooking, wrap tortillas in foil and place on grill to heat.
  • Assemble fajita by laying beef strips in the center of each tortilla and top with Pico De Gallo.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
