Listen, people. Not everything has to be labored over or locally sourced or a pain in the ass to be totally legit & delicious. This salsa is spicy & yummy & you make it in your fucking blender. Winter in the northeast? No worries. This salsa is spicy & kick ass & you won’t, I promise, you WON’T miss chopping sloppy, ripe tomatoes & other shit to make some pico de gallo. Pico de gallo that NOBODY will presume cost you hours of chopping & three Bandaid wrapped finger cuts from chopping with a dull knife. Don’t be a bitter, wounded – literally & otherwise – douche that has to tell everyone “I made that myself!” – because, frankly, they all really should kiss your ass for making them homemade pico de gallo when you know they probably open a jar of Pace Picante sauce when home alone.
But I digress.
Just buy these ingredients & stick’m in a blender or food processor & be done with it.
