Fresh Homemade Mango Salsa Recipe

Mangos!!!!  Salsa!!!!  What could be more delightful?

I had some mangos on the verge of being overripe so I improvised this salsa.  It’s a little spicy, a little sweet, a little smoky, and very fresh.  You’ll never want to eat store-bought salsa again!

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:

2 regular mangos or 4 champagne mangos
One 14 ounce can of organic chopped tomatoes, in their juice, or approximately 1 and 1/4 cups roughly chopped fresh tomatoes
1/3 cup regular or red onion, roughly chopped
1/2 cup cilantro (optional)
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons sugar, maple syrup or other sweetener
5 drops liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon chili powder (not red pepper)
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes or hot sauce, to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Peel mangos with a paring knife and cut out their pits.  Chop the mango flesh roughly and dump it into a blender or food processor.  Add all other ingredients to the blender.

Pulse a few times, depending on how smooth or chunky you like your salsa.

Makes about 4 – 5 cups salsa.
