I like to make almost everything from scratch– from salsas to desserts, and of course main dishes. Normally, I chop up some veggies, add in lime and cilantro, and we’ve got a salsa. Adding in fruit gives it another unexpected twist. Both pineapple and mango salsa are sweet and salty, perfect for dipping and eating with chips, fish, or chicken. I love the tangy tartness from the mango, splashed with lime and seasoned with a little salt. Whether you’re getting ready for the Super Bowl, or just having kids over to watch a movie, your family will be scraping the bowl to finish this easy and delicious mango salsa.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I was at the store the other day- did you know that DelMonte sells mango in a can? I really had never seen that before- and even though I prefer fresh mango 100 times over, it is such a great idea for when fresh mango isn’t in season.
The first step is to gather all of the ingredients.
Mango Salsa Ingredients
Diced Mango (preferably fresh, but if not- now I see there is canned mango!)
Tomato Salsa (either your own or jarred- chunky works best). Our homemade tomato salsa (pico de gallo) is made with tomatoes, onion, cilantro, lime, and salt.
Black Beans (leftovers, homemade, or from a can!)
The second step is to just mix together and enjoy! You control how spicy it is (by adding or not adding jalapeño), and the mango gives it a sweet flavor the kids can’t resist. We love it with chips, crackers, or on fish or chicken. I love exposing my kids to different flavors and textures- and the more we try new foods and combinations, the more open they are to try them. What I love about mango salsa is that it takes two minutes, and everyone is impressed:).
