  • 2 ripe (400 g) tomatoes chopped into cubes
  • 1 red onion finely minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper or chili seeded & minced
  • 1 bunch (20 g) cilantro chopped
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • salt & pepper


  • Cut tomato into small cubes, finely chop red onion and cilantro. Remove the seeds and core from the chili pepper and finely chop.
  • Place all ingredients in a small bowl, toss well, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Chili: The authentic Mexican recipe uses green jalapeños. Unfortunately, in some countries, these are hard to find and can therefore be replaced by green or red chilies. 🌶 
Store leftovers for up to 2 days in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Delicious with tacos, quesadillas, or nachos.
