Black Bean Mango Salsa

This is one of my favorite things to make in the summer or when mango’s are in season. The crisp flavor of the veggies and cilantro, mixed with the sweet taste of mango and spiciness of the jalapeno can be a great compliment to any dish or light snack. I like to serve this with Chip’ins popcorn chips (I’ll do a review on this product soon. It’s my new favorite thing.) or over grilled fish or chicken. I hope you enjoy recipe and much as I do.

Ingredients:

2-3 Fresh Mango (Coarsely Chopped)

½ Can Black Beans (Rinsed and Drained)

½ Red Bell Pepper (Chopped)

½ Green Bell Pepper (Chopped)

½ Red Onion (Chopped)

½ Jalapeno Pepper (Chopped)

½ tsp minced garlic

Sea Salt to taste

Crushed Black Pepper to taste

½ Fresh Lime Juice (if small use one lime)

Cilantro according to taste (Chopped)

Direction:

Place  chopped vegetables, and spices in a large bowl. Mix well until thoroughly combined.


Cut and score mango. Then flip inside out. This makes it easier to dice the slippery fruit and it gives you better control of the size you want to cut for the salsa.

Add Mango to veggie mix and squeeze in the lime juice.

Place black beans in the mixture.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. The longer the flavor meld the better the salsa. It’s that easy. Serve with your favorite chip, fish or chicken dish.
