This Mango Salsa recipe is a delightfully refreshing salsa that’s balanced with sweet mango, zingy onions, and spicy jalapeno. Serve it as a chip dip, taco topper, or salad sprucer-upper!

“Oh you fancy, huh?” That used to be my reaction when someone would make their own salsa. To me, it was a thing shrouded in mystery, so I fearfully and faithfully stuck by my store bought salsa.

But guess what? Making homemade salsa isn’t all that hard. In fact it’s not hard at all. It involves a little bit of choppin’ and a little bit of stirrin’ and a whole lot of eatin’.

Mango Salsa Ingredients

With just a few minutes of work you can have tasty homemade salsa that will make your friends be all, “oh you fancy”. Here’s what you’ll need to make this mango salsa:

  • Mangoes: Mango is the star of the show in this salsa. It’s sweet without being overwhelming, and compliments the spicy pepper and zingy onion perfectly!
  • Red Onion: Adds zing and flavor to help balance out the sweetness.
  • Bell Pepper: Use any color bell pepper you have on hand.
  • Jalapeno: I use one jalapeno in this salsa, but you can add another for a more spicy mango salsa.
  • Cilantro: It isn’t salsa without a heavy hand of fresh cilantro.
  • Lime: Fresh lime juice, as opposed to bottled, will bring a lot more flavor and freshness to this salsa.
  • Spices: We’ll finish it off with a bit of cumin and salt!

How to use mango salsa

Mango salsa is great as a chip dip, but you can also use it as a condiment in many other dishes! I love to serve this mango salsa on tacos (like on these Tempeh Tacos) or on nachos (like these pulled “pork” nachos).
