shredded cheese

lettuce or spinach (we used spinach)

hot sauce

finely diced or thinly sliced radishes

lime juice

Directions:

1. Prepare the salsa: Slice, dice, and mix. Crush if you want. (This recipe makes a lot, so expect leftovers.)

 3. Heat a large saute pan over medium temperature. 

 4. Add the olive oil to the pan and heat for about one minute.
