Mango Habanero Salsa

This recipe is the best of both worlds

Nothing cuts through a spicy, fresh habanero salsa quite like a refreshingly sweet mango.

This recipe is courtesy of the National Mango Board.


  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 Cups fresh mango, diced
  • 1 Cup Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 –2 habanero peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/3 Cup fresh cilantro, chopped


In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat.

Add the onions and garlic and sauté until onions are soft and translucent, about 8 minutes.

Add the mangos, tomatoes, habanero (1 habanero for mild heat or 2 for high heat), lemon juice, honey, salt and chili powder.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Pour into a blender and pulse until the mixture is blended, yet still has texture.

Stir in the cilantro and serve.

Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.
