Fresh Mango Salsa with Chili Lime Chips is the best way to start your Mexican Fiesta!
Who doesn’t love chips and salsa? If you are like me, when I go out to a Mexican restaurant, I end up making a meal on the (always refillable) chips and salsa. Then I am full by the time the main entree comes!
Recently I developed a recipe for a Prickly Pear Margarita that is so delicious, but definitely on the sweeter side. While it would be great with grilled shrimp taco’s or a Mexican Rubbed Steak Fajita, I don’t think it would be tasty with a bite of regular salsa. I created this light and fresh Mango Salsa with Chili Lime Chips to nosh on with my new margarita!
The Method of Fresh Mango Salsa with Chili Lime Chips
ingredients for the salsa:
- 1 fresh mango, peeled and diced small
- 1 small can diced pineapple
- 1/4 red onion, small dice
- 1/2 large jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed, finely diced
- 1 tablespoon pineapple juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
ingredients for the chips:
- Sweet Hawaiian Flour Street Taco Shells
- Coconut oil sprayl
- Badia Chili and Lime Seasoning
First make the salsa by combining all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Next, take the flour tortillas and stack on top of each other. Cut into quarters. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. (5 whole tortillas should fit on 1 sheet pan once quartered).
Spray with oil then sprinkle with seasoning. Flip and repeat. Bake at 325 degrees 8-10 minutes. Turn the chips over and continue baking another 3-5 minutes. Let chips cool.
Serve salsa in a brightly colored bowl with the chips on the side!
Tips for success:
Not sure how to peel and carve a mango? No worries…Most stores have them already done for you in the refrigerated area of the produce section.
Try grilling the mango, pineapple and jalapeno for a charred accent.
Swap out Mango and/or pineapple for other fruits like watermelon, kiwi or strawberries.
Instead of Chili Lime chips, make a cinnamon sugar mixture to sprinkle over the top!
I hate to say it (because I do NOT like it) but if you like Cilantro sprinkle a bit on top for freshness.
