Here is this week’s episode:

A few Notes:

This show is as much about knife usage as it is Pico De Gallo. When you are prepping this dish you can do as I did with various size pieces creating a chunky type salsa (my favorite). I have seen people prep it in a food processor but it appears more like a relish and I find it less appealing. The beauty of food is you can prepare it to your liking.

I referred to the small red peppers as Seranos because that is how they are often labeled in the grocery stores, much like Poblanos are often called Pasillas. These “Seranos” are actually Fresnos which are red jalapenos. True Seranos are smaller and hotter and come in both red and green as do jalapenos.

And finally next week Emily and I will be preparing a Mexican style Tomato Sauce that is perfect as a compliment to any number of great Mexican dishes from Enchiladas, to Rellenos, to the Baked Stuffed Poblanos that we will prepare in the show after the Tomato Sauce.
