I will cook anything Mark Bittman tells me to.

1 habanero or jalapeño pepper, stemmed, seeded and minced, or to taste

¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice or 1 teaspoon red-wine vinegar

Salt and freshly ground pepper.


1. Combine all ingredients, taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.


2. Let the flavors marry for 15 minutes or so before serving, but serve within a couple of hours.


Yield: about 2 cups.
