Red, White and Green All Year Long December 02 2011

Move over Christmas with your holiday colors. La bandera mexicana is also red, white and green, and so are the staples of our cooking. I'd say about half of what I cook has these three in it: tomato, onion and cilantro. I use it in a ton of different ways, including to make pico de gallo, to add to avocado to make guacamole, or just add to a can of Goya pinto beans para componerlos, as my mom says. Buen provecho!
