The Daily Tailgate

It's time for the Daily Tailgate. The Daily Tailgate will get you prepared for the Big Game by giving you ideas on what to make for your friends and families. We will also be replaying some classic commercials. This feature will run each weekday, usually around lunch time, up until the Big Game.

Break out your sombraro's, we're going Mexican today. If you decide to treat your guests to this Mexican Barbeque Feast they'll be sure to thank you as they try and decide to run to the bathroom during the commercials, or wait for the game to come back on. This recipe comes via Cyndi Allison @

Pica de Gallo

2 finely diced onions (white onion is traditional)
2 large finely diced tomatoes (really don’t use the canned ones - yuck)
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro (fresh is great – sprinkle is OK if you can’t find fresh)
2 fresh jalapenos, finely diced (go fresh if you can – use from jar if necessary)
1/8 tsp. pepper (freshly ground is nice –table pepper is OK)
juice of 1 orange (or 1 TBS of orange juice)
juice of 2 limes (1 TBS of the lime that comes in the plastic -squirt lime or lime juice bottle)
1 tsp salt

Chop onions and tomatoes. You want little chunks the size of M&M candies or a bit smaller.
Chop cilantro and jalapenos.
Juice the fruit if you don’t use bottled juice. Don't keep the pulp - just the juice.
Mix everything together.
Chill overnight in the refrigerator.

It was reported earlier in the week that we will be seeing some more Carlos Mencia commercials in this year's Super Bowl. So here you go with one that you may not have seen yet:
