Three tortillas make one very generous portion PICO DE GALLO SAUCE: Combine all ingredients. Let sit for at least 30 minutes so flavors will blend.
I made these for my Vegetarian friend and she loved them. I will be making them again!
If you wanted to make them vegan you could omit the sour cream and cheese.
