Mango salsa. This fresh, sweet and slightly spicy fruit salsa is the perfect way to add some flavor to your chips and salsa routine. It also packs a punch when paired with fish, shrimp, or chicken tacos!
How to make Mango Salsa
This is a fresh salsa. Meaning we aren’t cooking any of our ingredients. We are also dicing up all the ingredients by hand and not blending them together. Making it more like a pico de Gallo.
To make this salsa we will:
- Dice up the mangos, red bell pepper, jalapeno, red onion, and cilantro. (If you need some help in cutting up your mango check out this video!)
- Sprinkle with salt.
- Add the lime juice. I recommend starting small with the lime juice, this is an ingredient that can become overpowering. Add juice from half of the lime, taste, and add more lime juice as desired. I always recommend fresh lime juice, since bottled lime juice has other sweeteners added that can affect the taste and flavor.
- Let the salsa chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This allows time for the lime juice to soften the peppers and mango, creating more juice.
- If you want to add more heat to the salsa, you can leave the membranes in the jalapeño. You can also substitute with a Serrano pepper instead if you are really looking to add some heat.
What do you use mango salsa for?
Mango salsa is a fun salsa that pairs perfectly with fish or chicken. I personally love this salsa with fish and shrimp tacos. Plus it is a wonderful contrast to a grilled chicken, or even a slightly spicy chicken.
You can also definitely just eat this salsa on it’s own or with some tortilla chips!
