Fresh Mango Salsa

I love chips and salsa on a lazy weekend, and it’s also one of my favorite recipes to make from scratch. I used a “Southwest Salsa” recipe as a basis to get started and experiment with. The southwest salsa came out spicy, and while I like spicy foods, I prefer to have a milder and sweeter salsa. After experimenting with a few different variations of the salsa, I finally found the right flavor for my family and our guests. Hope you salsa lovers enjoy this simple and convenient recipe!

  • Batch of vine tomatoes (Usually about 4-6 tomatoes)
  • 1-2 mangos
  • 1/4 cup of red onion (Add more if you like red onion)
  • 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
  • Small cam of chipotles in A0dobo Sauce
  • Small can of diced mild green chilis
  • 2 limes
  • Salt (if needed)

Cut up tomatoes, mangos, red onion and cilantro and add to blender. One mango will suffice, but if you like a sweeter salsa, use two mangos.  Drain the liquid from the adobe and green chilies and add to the blender. (For a spicier taste, use the whole can of adobe chili. For a less spicy flavor, use 1/2 can or less.)  Add the two limes and then pulse the ingredients.

This amount can last a week, so eat it with tortilla chips, add to chicken, nachos, eggs – any dish that goes well with salsa.
