2-3 orange habanero chiles, minced
1/3 cup minced Onion
juice of 1 lime

Combine all the ingredients and serve as a side on fajitas, tacos, steak, etc.

This mixture has a very refreshing flavor that can be enjoyed alone. The lime juice tames the heat a little, but be careful it is still very hot! Have beers at the ready!
