A note about serious food allergies

Life is just a bowl of delicious, contrasting-yet-harmonious flavors: rich pulled pork, sweet corn, salty tortilla, and the cool heat of the jalapeño cilantro crema. Cherries are a delight (that's how the saying goes, if you've been trying to remember), but this bowl is better. Tip: Want to get the most juice out of your lime? Before cutting, microwave for 15-20 seconds to "soften" the fruit. Then, gently roll the softened fruit on your work surface while pressing on it with your palm. Finally, give yourself some serious mechanical advantage by placing a cut half in between the arms of a pair of tongs to make squeezing much easier.

    Prepare the Ingredients
