Mango Salsa - Who Needs a Cape?

I was very skeptical many years ago when I was first tried Mango Salsa.  I soon discovered one of my favorite things to eat.  Mango Salsa can be eaten on its own with tortilla chips or crackers and can also be a great addition to several recipes.  It really compliments things like fish and barbecue pork or chicken.

What I love best is that you can use fresh or frozen mango, which can help with prep time if it is thawed ahead of time.  Remember also, that you can adjust the heat of this dish with the amount of jalapeno seeds that are allowed to remain.  If you have never tried it before, you should seriously give Mango Salsa a chance.

Serve along with:

Creamy Chorizo Bean Dip is snap to prepare but delivers delicious flavors worthy of the best tortilla chips. Great appetizer for tailgating or parties too.

  1. Do you freeze the mango salsa? Like when you make the mango salsa pulled pork, do you add the mango salsa to the freezer bag and freeze it all together?

  2. If you are making the freezer meal you can freeze it or add it fresh. I do not freeze the mango salsa when adding it to the tops of sandwiches after cooking. It would make it too mushy.
