Hello LSN community, I have BIG news!….
Mangos are in season!!!! Yes, this is BIG news because we LOVE mangos, so I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite ways to eat mangos. Usually, we just cut them and scoop the meat out of the peel but we are from Texas, so salsa is the next favorite.
Salsa is always a must at every family gathering, and the hotter the better! Although I’m not a fan of my mouth burning in agony, I do enjoy the different flavors of salsa! This recipe is flavorful, refreshing, and with a hint of spice. It has one of my favorite combinations, mangoes, and avocado. But the mango is definitely the highlight of this recipe.
This recipe is great to take to any pot, or family gathering, or use as a snack on family movie night. And I bet they would go great with some bean tacos or any Mexican-style dish. I also like this on some sprouts or in a salsa, even eating right out of the bowl, it’s that good.Print
