Mango Salsa and It’s Many Uses

20 Feb


I love making Mango Salsa because of all the wonderful things I can eat with it. Not only is it a great dip for chips, I like to enjoy it on carne asada tacos, over chicken, fish, a salad and just today I made a chicken salad using left-over mango salsa. Oh and look how easy this is to make. 🙂

Mango Salsa

1 mango, chopped

1/4 large red onion, chopped

roasted jalapeno, seeded and chopped

juice of 1 lime

cilantro, chopped

I roast the jalapeno over the stove and then carefully cut it open to remove the seeds, then chop. Combine all ingredients and enjoy!
