This week I made sure I’ve taken extra precaution to keep myself from overloading my schedule. Apparently, even if I work at home I still can’t avoid sleeping way past midnight because of so much things to do. To be honest,  I don’t know where all these chores come from! I never seem to run out of laundry, clothes to fold, clothes to iron…. toys to keep.

Today, I was at Maynilad. I was there too yesterday. I am trying to get the water connection to our soon-to-be-home reconnected. It was I who also got it temporarily disconnected three years ago when it was still a computer shop. Since peanutbutter and I are having the house reconstructed (very soon), we’re gonna need some water supply, hence, the waiting and almost-sleeping-while-waiting at the Maynilad office for two hours each day now.

I usually go there after lunch, when it’s suppose to be siesta time. I get home at around four-ish in the afternoon, a bit sleepy and craving for something to munch on. When that happens, I usually grab a bag of Chacho’s Tortilla Chips and then make myself a small bowl of Pico de Gallo to dip on.

Why Pico De Gallo?  Because it’s very easy to make and I usually have almost, if not all, the ingredients in the fridge.

Pico de Gallo is also known as Salsa Fresca or Fresh Salsa and is made with chopped tomatoes, onions, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice.

My favorite Chacho’s variant to pair with my Pico de Gallo? Chacho’s Cheesy Cheese!! This variant is thin, crispy and oozing with cheese flavor that complements the mild spiciness of the salsa and tangyness of the tomatoes.

Aside from Cheesy Cheese, there are two more Chacho’s variants namely: BBQ Bonanza and Spicy Curry. These are available in two sizes 185g and 80g. The 80g is usually good for sharing but is just right for me when i’m in the mood for chips and dip.

For now, let me leave you with the recipe…

  1. I can totally relate! I had been sleeping at 2 am for the past 2 years and finally decided my body can’t take it so now try to stop everything by 12:30 and go to sleep by 1 am. I always feel like I can do more stuff after kids go to sleep, so I tend to pack so much stuff to do at night time. But we need beauty sleep. 🙂 I got so much white hair from lack of sleep… Love the quick pico de gallo. Once I start eating chips… very hard to stop! 😀

  2. I understand the whole evening time creeping up on you. There just sometimes does not seen like there is enough hours in the day to get everything done. Great little pico de gallo light and delicious.

  3. I love pica de gallo but I usually use jalapeno. With the bird’s eye chile I bet this is one HOT salsa!!! Pass it my way! 🙂

  4. ooooh, i so love salsa! i’m a tomato freak. i’ve never heard of chachos till today and i’m on a no junk food diet, but….but…but…maybe on my cheat day! haha. saving this recipe! thanks a whole bunch!

  5. Peachy, will the Pico de Gallo taste super different without cilantro? I’m no a fan of the stuff kasi, but I know that it’s one of the main flavors for this.

  6. I’m totally craving for those chips since yesterday and now I found this. Whoa, it’s fated that I reached the page and learned Chacho’s variants as well.

  7. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I’ll try to do this dip for the weekend picnic. My husband craves for Jalapeno. There’s a lot of chips in the market so I guess any brand will do.

  8. I always include salsa to go with my chips in my cart and it costs me much like hundred pesos++ . thank you for the recipe. I didn’t know it was that easy!

  9. chores can really occupy us from hours and end. you are not alone. i almost always find myself working with chores through the night, even right after my little man dozed off to zzzland.

    this looks like a really refreshing dip or side dish, no worries about adding up on calories + pounds, plus am sure it will taste really great with chips! must try this soon! 🙂

  10. ahh the laundry.. I always wonder why my laundry basket is never empty, so it’s time in your household pala..must be the basket hahaha

    as for Pico de gallo, not a fan of cilantro.. sakto na ako sa mayonnaise dip haha
