Mango/habanero salsa.

Mango/habanero salsa is sweet spicy and very addictive. Normally I wouldn't use habanero in any of my dishes, but trying this salsa taught me something else. As long as you have the sweet mango and only tiny cubes of habanero it's to die for.



  • 1-2 Habanero, depending on the spicyness 
  • 2 Mangos
  • ¼ Red Onion (medium sized)
  • 1 ½ - 2 inches english cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes, medium
  • 1 lime, large
  • Cilantro
  • Salt


The mangos should be very ripe and soft, so you can peel of the skin without using a knife. Peel mango, onion and tomatoes. Dice them all finely along with the cucumber. Mix it with chopped cilantro and the juice of the lime. Chop the habanero extremely fine (use gloves handling the habanero), and mix it with the rest. Season with salt.

Serve with chips or with tacos.
