    Bergy's Note:

    I love the flavor of this simple summer dish. Be careful with the cilantro it is an acquired taste. Wonderful do ahead in the AM and assemble it just before dinner. I like to do this dish with leftover roast beef too. It is hearty enough on it's own but I like to serve it with balsamic tomato slices, sweet onion slices, floral carved radishes and a bit of green salad.

      Just a small comment before you try this dish...peruvians do not use jalapenos in their cooking, they actually have diferent types of "aji"which give a very distinct flavor to their meals. Be careful when using jalapenos since they are very hot. See if you can find a spanish store that have a peruvian section or use 1 jalapeno instead of 3 just to see how hot(spicy) your meal is.
