I don’t mean to brag, but this stuff is GOOD. Like really good.

I know, because the first time I made this salsa, Travis ate it all in one sitting. He inhaled it so fast that I’m pretty sure he forgot to breathe.

So yeah, it’s some good stuff.

This Mango Salsa is a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy. I can’t handle ultra-spicy food, so the heat level is perfect for my tastebuds — I’d say it’s about medium.

If you’re feeling more daring than me, feel free to increase the amount of jalapeno in the recipe.

I love this salsa with corn tortilla chips, but it’s also delicious with grilled white fish like mahi mahi or tilapia. It’s a summer meal I always look forward to — plus it’s super easy and healthy!
