What To Do?

I had to make some more of our award winning Citrus Marmalade and, knowing how long it can take to make it, I wanted something to "snack on". And knowing that Pico de Gallo can actually be several things - an Appetizer, Side Dish or an adjunct to a Main Dish - I made a large bowl of it. We make our own recipe. Here it is:
Pico de Gallo

Comments: Pico de Gallo can be used as an Appetizer, Side Dish or Main Dish additive. It is a versatile component. A condiment.
Degree of Difficulty: Easy
Servings: 12

6 lg Roma Tomatoes, cut into chunks
1 bunch Cilantro, chopped
1 lg White Onion, diced
1 lg Avocado, diced
6 cloves Garlic, minced
2 Jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and diced
1 T Mexican Oregano, dried
2 t Cinnamon
3 Limes juiced


1). Dice the tomatoes and place in a large bowl. Dice the onion and add to bowl. Chop the cilantro, dice the jalapeno and mince the garlic and add to the bowl. Add the diced avocado. Mix to combine.
2). Add the spices and salt. Squeeze the limes and add the juice to the bowl. Mix until combines. Taste and adjust as necessary.
3). Place the mixture into the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving to marry the flavors. Serve cold with blue corn chips.

Cooking Times:
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Inactive Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes

So there you have it, and a repeat for our Citrus Marmalade recipe. Enjoy! Cheers!
