This is a good basic recipe that, in my opinion, needed a little amping up.  Like the previous poster, I added lime juice (from one lime), nearly an entire bunch of cilantro (including stems), half of a medium red onion, a whole habanero pepper (including seeds) and three large cloves of garlic.  I did make the recipe to the letter but it was flat.  I would give it five stars for being a great basic recipe to build from, but as is it only rates three.
