    3 Tbsp finely diced fresh cilantro leaves
    Juice of one lime
    2 tsp salt

    My wife makes "Dragon's Breath" chili - 2 jalapenos, 3 poblanos, 3 anaheim peppers, 3 habaneros, 2 tsps cayenne, along with pound of chorizo sausage, amongst a lot of other stuff.
    Love me some heat.

    You should try it with Habanero. The apricot flavor of the chile's flesh would be a nice addition. The only chiles I would avoid in this recipe is poblano/pasilla variety. Too fibrous in a raw dish.

    Your pico recipe is spot on. Most people forget the cilantro. It also make a good additive to everything from queso to burgers and stew.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Your post didn't mention the Roma's should be seeded. I've always seeded them for PdG.
