Delicious Mango & Corn Salsa Recipe

Mango goes well with corn. This salsa recipe brings them together in a spicy dish that is sure to please. You can serve this mango and corn salsa recipe with chips, tacos, fish, pork, chicken or anything else that comes to mind. You could also sit and eat it with a spoon if you are so inclined. It is tasty and delicious. If you like things a bit spicy, you will love this colorful salsa. The Serrano peppers give this dish a bit of a kick that you will enjoy.

Mangos are exotic. They are bright. They are available all year long. Why not make the most of this delicious tropical fruit? Mangos are full of vitamins C and A. They support a healthy immune system, good vision and strong bone growth. They provide fiber that can keep your digestive system working well and can help lower your cholesterol. Making a salsa containing mangos is a great tasting way to work this fruit into your meals. Your kids will love them and not even notice how good they are for their health. You will be amazed at how many foods go well with mangos when you make this salsa.

Choose mangos that have a slight give when you grip them. If you want to eat it the same day, choose one that is slightly soft. Firmer mangos work well if you plan to eat them later in the week. They will ripen at room temperature. Once ripe, they can be kept in the refrigerator for up to five days.

Just like with many other salsa recipes, putting this one together is largely a question of preparing and combining the ingredients. In this recipe you will also need to puree some of the ingredients in a food processor to change the consistency of the salsa. The peppers and onion go in there along with some of the cilantro and tomatoes, then oil and vinegar are mixed into this mixture, and it is pureed until smooth.

The remaining cilantro and tomatoes are then added to the puree mixture, along with mango, bell pepper and corn, and some sugar and cumin for added flavor. This is a chunky salsa but also one with plenty of liquid because of the pureeing, making it just as good as a dipping sauce as something for topping tacos, fajitas or burgers.

Mango Corn Salsa
Summary: This versatile salsa can be served as a dip or an accompaniment to your entrée. The mango and corn add color and sweetness to the overall flavor.

Photo Description:

Mango and corn salsa is not just ideal for dipping chips, but it is also a worthy topping for tacos. Just look at how delicious these tacos are in this photo, then consider how they would look without the salsa on top. The bright colors of the mango, corn and cilantro add plenty of visual appeal to the dish, and you do not have to stick to tacos either. Try some of this mango corn salsa on top of a burger or served alongside enchiladas. It would also be nice added to a humble cheese sandwich to add a Mexican twist to the flavor.
