Yesterday, I was craving somthing spicy. When it comes to foods I am a huge fan of heat, so I wanted to use the jalapeño pepper I had in the refrigerator. I realized I had a ripe mango on the counter which reminded me of an amazing recipe. I went to my friend Paige's house and her mom made us mango salsa. It was fantastic! I did not know the exact amount so I just used the basic idea.
(Recipe compliments of Paige's mom)
1 mango; cubed
1/4 cup medium white onion; chopped
1/2 of a jalapeño pepper; finley chopped*
1/2 cup tomatoe; cubed
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. Serve with chips.
*Caution: wear gloves when chopping the jalapeño peppers, especially if you wear contacts. It is hard to get the juices of your hands, even if you wash them very well. You can use more or less jalapeño, depending on how much heat you want. You can also omit it all together.
I put the salsa inside toasted whole pita bread because I did not have any chips.
