Christi's Salpicon

My mom made this while I was growing up, and now I love to cook it for my own family. It's a great dish and super easy to make. Great with some fresh flour tortillas, cheese, sliced avocado, hot sauce, and pico de gallo. Also great for game-day parties. The leftovers freeze well!
