Tia Mowry has created another tasty recipe in her kitchen. Whether you are celebrating National Margarita Day, Taco Tuesday or just want a delicious salsa to pair with some Late July chips, this Pico de Gallo recipe will have you feeling like summer is here.
Sometimes food holidays are the perfect excuse to be a little creative in the kitchen. While National Margarita Day is often focused on the cocktail, cocktails are always tastier with a great recipe. The key is to find flavors that pair well with that beverage.
Since margaritas tend to balance the sweet and sour, a recipe needs to balance those flavors as well. From a touch of brightness to a bold heat, the combination of flavors leads to a tasty experience.
What is Tia Mowry making in the kitchen?
While many people pair chips and salsa, pico de gallo and chips are equally as tasty. Actually, pico de gallo is a type of salsa, often called salsa fresca. It tends to be chunkier compared the more blended salsa.
For Mowry’s recipe, she adds avocado and mango into the tomato, onion and jalapeno mixture. By adding the avocado and mango, the pico de gallo has a lovely balance of flavors, not too hot and not too sweet.
More importantly, this particular recipe pairs well with the Late July Organic Restaurant Style Sea Salt and Lime tortilla chips. The touch of acid from the lime in the chips adds brightness to each bite. The sea salt makes you want to go back bite after bite. Without realizing, the bowl of pico de gallo and chips will disappear before your eyes.
Since margaritas are often paired with chips, this food could go with a classic margarita recipe, a spicy margarita or even a fruity margarita cocktail. Since the pico de gallo has so many layers of flavors, the versatility of cocktail pairings is plentiful.
Let some summer flavors create a food escape from the comfort of your couch. Grab a bag of Late July chips, some pico de gallo and a margarita. Cheers to the tasty life!
