Notes

  1. Add cilantro to taste, some people don't like it at all. It can be replaced with basil for a different flavor.
  2. About 1 cup when finely chopped.
  3. To taste and optional. If unavailable, you can replace it with a few slices pickled jalapeno, which will be added to the dish together with the onions and tomatoes. Or just leave it out completely.
