If you’re hosting a taco night, or on Spring Break in a tropical location where mangos are at their finest, try jazzing up your spread with this simple, yet impressive salsa. It also makes an excellent side salad. If you can’t find chipotle, feel free to substitute 1 minced jalapeno, or a good couple dashes of your favorite hot sauce (we love siracha).


1 medium mango, diced
1 garlic clove, minced or pushed through a press
½ small red onion, finely diced
1 lime, juiced
1 small canned chipotle pepper, minced*
1 tbsp of adobo sauce (juice from can)*
½ tsp salt
fresh cilantro, roughly chopped (optional)

*From one 7oz (or smaller) can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and toss to combine. For best results, make the salsa the night before to allow the flavors to intensify.
