  • Pico de Gallo

  • Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and toss to coat, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in each of two pans. Add the chicken pieces to one pan, and the shrimp to the other.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of chili powder and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt to each pan. Cook, tossing frequently, until the chicken is cooked through, and the shrimp is no longer opaque, about 5 minutes, a little less for the shrimp.
