Maybe With Some Pico de Gallo
Tonight, we had nachos for dinner. No, not the ones with fake cheese that you can buy at over-priced concessions stand at the movies. The kind you make at home, with Tostito’s bite-size chips covered in cheese, topped with sour cream, guacamole, and tomatoes. A good way to switch it up is, of course, the addition of cilantro-y pico de gallo.
Weeks ago, when first planning recipes for my blogging week, my father and I (or at least I) decided that one thing we absolutely had to make was pico de gallo.
Not because I greatly enjoy fresh tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. Not because it has a cool, foreign name. Not even because of its yummy delightfulness. Pico de gallo was a required recipe because you can eat it with tortilla-wrapped Megagirl units. If this makes absolutely no sense to you, I suggest you go watch Starship, an original sci-fi musical by Team Starkid. If typing in YouTube’s URL and searching for Starship is too much work for you (though I assure you, it is very much worth it), simply direct your attention to this video clip.
“One more comment like that, and I will wrap you up in a tortilla and eat you for a snack… maybe with some pico de gallo!”

*Damn Good Asterisk of the Day: These aren’t necessarily my favorite Starkid quotes, nor are they in any particular order. They’re simply a small sample of the genius that is Starkidpotter. I also can’t guarantee that these are 100% verbatim, as I don’t have the entire script of every show memorized (yet).
