Mango Salsa

Jump to Recipe

We like to celebrate taco Tuesday every week, for the most part. So that means I have to get creative with different types of tacos – meats, sauces, salsas, tortillas and preparations. We do chicken, pork, beef, crispy, baked, soft, corn, and flour. And I love to make fresh salsas to go on top of it all. This last week I went with a fresh Mango Salsa and it was so easy and so yummy!

Mango Salsa

This salsa needs to sit for at least 20 minutes before serving. It needs that long to develop the flavor you will be waiting on. The lime juice does a wonderful job of breaking down the ingredients to help them mingle together and become something so amazing.

The sweet and spicy of this salsa is just perfect over a baked chicken taco. I made the chicken in the slow cooker (with just my homemade taco seasoning). Then I chop it up and put the chicken and some shredded pepper jack into the tortillas. Then I lay them out on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Then I place another sheet of parchment paper on top and place another baking sheet on top. Then I use a cast-iron skillet on top to weigh it down and put the whole thing in a 425deg oven for 20 minutes. After letting them cool for a few minutes I fill them with the Mango Salsa.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
