Even if you think you can’t cook, you can make this chili. Prepared pico de gallo gives the chili a boost in the flavor and texture departments and tastes fresher than canned tomatoes. It’s easy, fast, cheap and delicious. So stop sending me emails about how my recipes are too expensive and complicated (you know who you are!) and make this.
