The Freshman Cook: My Heart Chip belongs with Pico!

There are few things I enjoy more than tortilla chips with Pico de Gallo. It’s always the perfect appetizer, welcome at any party or get together. When you think about it, it’s kind of a chameleon. It fits in everywhere. Well, this Pico de Gallo will fit perfectly into your Valentine’s Day plans. After all, it’s red and white, and the chips are heart shaped!!

Pico de Gallo  and Heart Chips

Flour Tortilla Chips

2 Roma Tomatoes

1/2  Onion

Fresh Cilantro

1 Garlic Clove

1 Jalapeno (late for the pic)

Chop your Roma tomatoes into small bite sized pieces.


Mince your garlic.

Chop your onion into small bite sized pieces.

Chop the cilantro and the jalapeno.

Remove the jalapeno seeds, and mince the pepper.

Be careful not to touch your eyes after touching the pepper.

They will sting. Also be sure to not inhale the fumes when you are

seeding the pepper. They can make you cough.

Add everything to a bowl .

Cover and refrigerate. 

(The peppers are in there, they just were put in later)

Take the flour tortilla, and a heart shaped cookie cutter,

and cut out heart shaped chips. Place them on a baking sheet,

 spray the chips with pan spray, and then…

sprinkle with garlic powder. No salt here!

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cool or eat warm.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!
