(Last Updated On: June 2, 2019)

Nothing takes bland to bold more quickly than a fresh salsa. It can dress up anything from a humble plain tortilla chip, add a huge dose of flavor to a simple garden salad, or bring grilled foods to a whole new level. Best yet, salsas can pull this off while adding few calories and little, if any, fat.

Spicy Mango Salsa Recipe

Easy Fresh Mango and Serrano Chili Salsa. Perfect side dish for grilled meats and fish. It's also a nice alternative to tomato salsa with chips or in tacos.


  • 1 Medium Fresh Mango
  • 1 - 2 Serrano Chile Peppers
  • 1 Small Red Onion
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes

  1. Dice the mango and red onion.
  2. Remove seeds and membranes from the peppers.
