This salad is a great way to fill up a tortilla; try it with ceviche, a bit of crispy bacon, or just on its own with a few leafy greens.
TIP: When chopping a fresh chili, a good way to try out the heat is to cut the chili in half with a knife and then rub the side of the knife with your finger and taste the juices. If it blows your mind, you likely won’t want too much of that particular chili. With dried flakes, the heat is often not as bad as you think.
