pico de gallo
Explanation:
We call it that in both languages, English & Spanish. It is made with chopped pieces of jalapeños among other things. It is very hot, so go slow and have a pitcher of beer on the table.

Try it, you'll love it!

Literal translation is "rooster's beak" but don't ask for that!
