– Exquisite –

Here we have a salsa that we are sure that everybody wants to try once in their life. This may be because the people are curious of trying the mango in the form of a salsa and they also want to see their food garnished with the mango’s appetizing color.

The mango salsa is a super original preparation, it is delicious and is full of different flavors. When the mango forms part of the salsa a lot of play goes on with its flavor because beyond being sweet and tropical a chipotle pepper is added to give it hotness and a smoky touch. The salsa’s flavor is also enhanced with other ingredients and as final touch is seasoned to perfection with some acidic notes. In summary you cannot miss it.

The best part of the salsa is that although it is complex it can be used in a wide variety of main courses and appetizers. We recommend using it in dishes that have chicken, fish or shellfish... and when you use it get ready because your food will become a whole feast of flavors.
