Mango Habanero Salsa

Yields: 2 cups | Prep Time: 10 min | Total Time: 10 min


  • 1½ cup fresh mango (diced) If using frozen mango, allow to thaw fully.
  • ½ cup cilantro (finely chopped, loosely packed)
  • ⅓ cup red bell pepper (diced)
  • ¼ cup red or sweet onion (finely diced)
  • 1 habanero pepper (extra finely diced or chopped in food processor) Be careful to wash hands thoroughly after touching the habanero peppers. They are very hot.
  • 1 large fresh lime (juiced)
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • In small dish, combine mango, cilantro, lime juice, red onion, habanero pepper, red bell pepper, cumin and salt until well combined. Add additional salt to taste if preferred.
  • Enjoy with tortilla chips or served with barbecued chicken or pork.


Instead of using 1.5 cups diced mango, you can use half mango and half pineapple for a more tangy salsa. Just follow the remaining recipe directions.
