Of course, it's so delicious, you each it with tortilla chips or straight out of the bowl.

Tips for Making the Best Mango Salsa

For a spicier mango salsa, leave in the jalapeno seeds or use a hotter chili like Thai chilis or habaneros.

If you're not keen on spice, omit the chilis.

Double the rest if you're serving mango salsa at a party or barbecue.

Add avocado for an even healthier, heartier mango salsa.

How to Store Mango Salsa
