Then, dice/cut everything up into bite-sized, easy-to-blend pieces. Not the limes, of course. Just cut those in half. They’re the last stop before mixing/mashing.

Put it all in a pretty bowl and then squeeze the limes so that all the juice covers the mixture.

Then get something to mash up the ingredients. Any kind of short, thick tool will do. If you want to be authentic, you can use a molcajete, a Mexican version of a mortar and pestle.
