Recipe: Mango-Habanero Salsa

Looking for something spicy to snack on or perhaps just a new topping for tonight’s tacos? Then try this recipe, which combines sweet tropical fruit flavor with a kick thanks to a good dose of habanero pepper. It’s also fantastic with this spicy guacamole.

Tip: As they ripen, mangoes develop small black spots and yield when gently pressed.


  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted, and finely diced
  • ½ lime
  • 1 orange habanero pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely diced
  • 10 grape tomatoes, finely diced
  • ½ c finely diced yellow onion
  • ¼ c finely chopped mint
  • ½ t kosher salt
  • Tortilla chips, for serving


1. In a bowl, mix together the mango, lime juice, habanero pepper, tomatoes, onion, mint, and salt. Serve with tortilla chips.

Serves: 4
