Chef's Notes

You might have to try several brands of hearts of palm and see which one you like best. Some are more tender than others. The recipe calls for 1 whole habanero, but if you don't eat a lot of spicy food I would add 1/2 or even a 1/3 of a pepper. Oil is optional. Avocado would go really well with this.
