Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!

Amazing Salsa! I chnged it up just a little. 4 Avocados. 3 Mangos. 1 Large Jalapeno. 1 Red Onion. 3 Squeezed Limes. 1 'bunch' of chopped cilantro. Salt & Pepper - very little of each and maybe 1-2 tsps of olive oil. Served with some seared scallops. Was excellent. Read More

1 lime is too much lime juice but it was tasty despite. I used serrano peppers instead of habaneros because I wasn't sure I could handle the habaneros but the serranos weren't bad either. Read More

I used this for a Salsa Recipe contest and won. It is pretty good. I didn't follow the recipe completely because I couldn't find it before I rushed to the store.....so I used green onions and added 1 kiwi and used some red chili pepper flakes to add some kick. It was a hit! I think I will try it with the red onion next time but still add the kiwi and the "kick". Read More

I made this quickly last night to go along with halibut tacos - it was terrific! I doubled the recipe and barely had any left. It is a good idea not to use an overripe mango - very messy. It wasn't pretty looking (due to mangled mango) but it sure tasted good! Read More

I love this salsa. I threw all of it in a blender to save time. I grilled portobello mushrooms with some cajun season salt and pepper...topped it with the salsa and it was delicious. A great vegetarian entre with some flair! Read More

This is excellent. I made with red spicy peppers instead since I couldn't find habeneros at Vons. Bit hit. I did add a touch of balsamic vinegar to the mix. Definately make this one again and double it. Read More

I admit that my mangoes were very sweet. Perhaps using less 'ripe' mango would have been helpful. The sweetness overpowered the dish, especially since avocadoes are mild in flavor. I used the zest from half of the lime, and ended up adding a bit of minced garlic to try to distract from the sweetness and add a level of flavor. Thanks for the recipe, but I think the 'tomato, avocado and mango salsa' recipe is a bit nicer due to the addition of the tangy tomato. Read More
