Sweet, tangy, and definitely lots of heat! A great salsa to eat with flaxseed tortilla chips or your favorite chip.

  • Place habanero pepper, mango, and onion on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat evenly.

  • Roast on the middle rack of the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Turn on the oven's broiler and roast for 5 more minutes. Move baking pan to the oven's top shelf; broil until onion and mango begin to brown and habanero pepper blisters, about 3 more minutes. Remove and slightly cool.

  • Wearing gloves, remove stem from habanero pepper and place pepper in a small food processor or blender; add mango, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Season with black pepper and cumin. Pulse until salsa is combined and slightly chunky. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving for flavors to blend.

This is more savory and oniony than I was hoping for. I could barely taste the mango and ended up adding peaches to give it a balance of hot to sweet. For my taste this isn't working. Read More

Made this for a salsa competition at work and coworkers devoured it! It was gone. The heat comes on slowly and you can really taste the mango when you first put it into your mouth. NOTES: 1) The recipe ingredients call for vegetable oil but you really need olive oil (see the directions); 2) I did not add as much salt as the recipe calls for. I adjusted this recipe for 30 servings which called for 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons of salt! I added barely 2 tablespoons of salt and that was perfect. Read More

I made this salsa but instead of a habanero I used a homegrown Trinidad Scorpion Butch-T pepper. Given the spicyness of this pepper I doubled everything else. I was delicious! Next time I will reduce the salt because it was a tad salty for me! Read More

Very flavorful salsa the first time I made it everybody loved it I needed a little more of a kick. This go around I used a Peach Ghost Pepper instead a little more mango and a little more lime juice. It's still awesome and much much hotter. Will definitely be making it again. Read More

I was planning to serve a variety of salsas at a work potluck and while I really don't like cilantro most people do so I decided to try this recipe as I had everything on hand and it was very different from my other selections. I was really intrigued by this idea so after reading other reviews I used a whole mango and a whole small sweet onion coated with olive oil and sprinkled with a caribbean sea salt. After I got it pureed with the remaining ingredients I thought it lacked acid and flavor but as I was having trouble getting past the flavor of the cilantro I left it alone. Sadly it was the least popular of all my suggestions but I still find myself wanting to play around with the idea. Thank you so much for the inspiration! Read More

Amazing salsa only thing i changed was i use a whole mango instead of a half. Also if you blend it well and add it to some tortilla chips with some chicken and then put all your cheese ontop and bake them it makes incredible nachos. Read More
