Let's not wait and make some Mango Salsa today!

Spicy Mango Salsa with heat and sweet blend of flavors

Mango Salsa is as easy to put together as dice all ingredients and mix in a bowl. My Mango Salsa recipe has evolved overtime. I shared this recipe on blog 2 years ago but decided to revise today to share the updated version with new photos. I promise to add a video soon.

The essential Mango Salsa ingredients, that are must in every mango salsa, are Ripe Mango, Red Onion, Cilantro, and Lime Juice. If you have these in hand, you can serve mango salsa with all Mexican food all summer long. Honestly, whenever I need to serve bowl of this Salsa at moment's notice.. I look no further than refrigerator. Combining these three with pinch of salt and chili powder. Leave aside for flavors to marry while I warm a batch of tortilla chips.  

However, if you like to serve a top-notch, the best ever Mango Salsa, it needs a few more ingredients!

To enhance the sweetness of mangoes.. I give mango salsa boost of spices and heat with fresh jalapeno, toasted cumin seeds powder, and generous splash of hot sauce. These three ingredients work like magic in enhancing the flavor of Mangoes. Almost like street-side Tajin-Mango!

Let me summarize the ingredients for my updated Mango Salsa Recipe:

  1. Mango, ripe and sweet
  2. Red onion
  3. Jalapeno
  4. Cilantro
  5. Cumin
  6. Lime Juice
  7. Hot Sauce
  8. And strawberries, tomatoes (one or both) for color.

Mango Salsa Ingredients

Few tips to make Perfect Mango Salsa every time:

  1. Mango Salsa is best when you use ripe and sweet mangoes such as Alfanzo, Altufo, Kent.
  2. Adjust hot sauce to taste. Start with half the quantity mentioned in ingredients list, mix well, and then add more per taste. Salsa can handle more heat if mangoes and strawberries are sweeter. You can also balance heat with 1/2 tsp of sugar or honey.
  3. Always let Salsa sit for 30 minutes to an hour before serving. This helps marry flavor of ingredients with seasonings. Mango and strawberries release juices, adding delicious sweet and tangy flavor to the salsa.
  4. If you don't like sharpness of red onions? Leave onions to marinate in lime, salt and cumin for 30 minutes before adding rest of the ingredients.
  5. When serving with Chips. Warm chips for 30 seconds. 

Oh, and make some extra because it goes super fast. ;-)

(Keep an extra bag of chips in hand. I always run out. )

TIP: If you are ever stuck with unripe mango. Don't let it go waste. Put it in a brown bag with banana. It will ripen way faster. Don't keep in refrigerator.

How to Use Mango Salsa:

Just get some chips. Sit on a couch. Watch games and keep scooping salsa with yummy crunchy chips. When I'm lucky to save some I keep it for taco Tuesday.  You can serve Mango Salsa with;

1) fish tacos.
2) weeknight roasted salmon dinner.
3) as condiment, on the side with any dish.
