Notes

  • Make sure to cut the tomato, onion, and jalapeño into similar-sized pieces so you don’t end up with a mouthful of just one thing. You don’t want a bite of just onions!
  • Do not forget to remove the seeds in your jalapeño pepper but be careful when doing so. Wash your hands afterward as the residue gives you “jalapeño hands” where your skin might feel like it’s burning. You can also wear gloves when cutting jalapeño peppers to avoid it entirely. 
  • If you find red onions to have too much of a bite to them, you can give it a rinse before dicing to mellow out the flavor a bit. 
  • If you find cilantro to taste soapy, you can swap for parsley or leave it out altogether.
  • Want to get more juice out of your limes? Roll them under the palm of your hand on your countertop to loosen it up, so more liquid comes out when you squeeze it.
