With just the right amount of sweet and heat, this mango salsa recipe will go great with your favourite Tex-Mex meal.
Mangos are one of my favourite fruit. Thankfully, they are really high in nutrients because I love finding ways of adding them to recipes. While mango salsa isn't new, it does feature this wonderful fruit prominently.
The sweet mango with the heat from the chillies is just the perfect combination for all sorts of Mexican, Tex-Mex and Mexican-inspired recipes that call for regular tomato salsa. I've been known to tuck a spoonful in my Birria Tacos, and I also love this alongside samosas and other Indian dishes.
It is fast and simple to make, just let it rest in the refrigerator for about an hour to let the flavours mingle before serving.
