This fresh Mango Salsa recipe is a perfect blend of sweet and spicy!  A delicious and simple salsa to add to any taco, burrito or enchilada.

I love this recipe for Mango Salsa so so much! It’s a sweeter and juicer salsa than traditional pico de gallo and just as easy to make. The trick? Use ripe mangos! The riper they are, the sweeter the salsa. Add as much or as little jalapeno as you’d like and then grab some chips! Delicious with Carnitas, on Enchiladas or serve along side classic guacamole.

Mango Salsa Ingredients

You don’t need a lot of ingredients for Mango Salsa, but they should be fresh! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Ripe Mango – Use two ripe and sweet mangos! Peel and dice into bite sized pieces.
  • Red Bell Pepper – red bell peppers are sweeter than yellow or green and provide great color.
  • Green Onions – this is used for subtle oniony flavor.
  • Jalapeño – I used one half of a jalapeño for this recipe but if you like things spicier, add a whole one OR if you’re feeling spicy, add two! (Get it? Spicy?)
  • Cilantro – for garnish and for taste. If you hate the taste of cilantro just leave it out.
  • Lime Juice – fresh lime juice will keep the colors bright and help bring out the sweetness of the mango. If you’re in a pinch, the bottled kind will do, but fresh is best.
  • Salt and Pepper – season to taste!


Feel free to customize this mango salsa recipe to your liking. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

  • Pineapple: acidic, sweet, and juicy!
  • Habanero: this is not for the faint of heart. Replace jalapenos with habanero pepper for a spicy wild ride.
  • Avocado: creamy, soft, and refreshing!
  • Peach: for when peaches are in season. Add some more sweetness to this salsa.
  • Tomato: for a more traditional salsa, add tomatoes.
  • Corn: use fresh grilled corn on the cob for some charred pops of flavor.

    Excellent recipe. Occasionally a local market sells this and a strawberry mango version. I add it to chicken salad and on cottage cheese. Thanks for posting, now I’ll be able to have it whenever I want it.
