For the past three years we have been eating our way through mouthwatering recipes from Latin America during Hispanic Heritage Month. We have enjoyed arepas from Venezuela, guaguas de pan from Ecuador, chilaquiles from Mexico and many other amazing meals.
It’s such a great way to discover another country and its culture!
In the recipe below you will find a traditional recipe with a modern twist. As you may know, pico de gallo is a traditional Mexican recipe and I am mixing it with the latest culinary fixation — avocado toast — to make an amazingly easy appetizer your whole familia will love.
The translation of “pico de gallo” is rooster’s beak. I once heard that this recipe got its name from the way people used to enjoy this salsa by pinching the pieces between their thumb and forefinger. I must admit I have eaten it that way myself especially when it’s just sitting on the counter calling my name.
My “mami” liked to add avocados to all her salsa dishes and pico de gallo was one of those salsas in which we regularly found avocados, marinating in the lime, onion and cilantro sauce. Yum!
Avocados From Mexico are always delicious and fresh so I don’t blame her for wanting to sneak in avocados since they are also nutritious and versatile. I remember walking the streets of Mexico and Honduras and seeing the locals bite into an avocado just like it was an apple.
