We begin by rinsing our ripe papaya and drying with a paper towel. We then cut the papaya in half and scoop out the seeds. We discard the seeds tonight, although they are edible. We peel the skin off the papaya and chop small. We add the 3/4 cup of papaya in a medium bowl.

We rinse the jalapeno next and dry it. We hold the stem with our left hand, upright on the cutting board, and remove the flesh from the pepper carefully. We leave the seed pod inside. We mince the pepper, yielding almost a tablespoon, and add it to the bowl with the papaya.

We then add the onion, a pinch of salt, and a squeeze of the lime to the bowl. We stir and set this aside for about 20 minutes to meld the flavors.

When we are ready to serve the papaya salsa, we add some hot sauce to taste.
