Hey there! I thought I would turn up the heat a little and make you a real good Texas recipe for our Blogger Recipe Challenge Mexican Cuisine Month! The summer months are upon us and that means all the fresh vegetables and fruits will be available and I can not wait!
Summer time is the perfect season to make lots of wonderful dishes and it is the perfect time to make salsa! This mango salsa I made is no ordinary salsa, I made it with a special ingredient just for you! During August and September in the south it is hatch chile season and I added them to this recipe! By the way, I have been waiting to share this recipe with you since last year! If you can’t get your hands on some hatch chiles, then you can use any chile or pepper that you like as a substitution!
- 1 Mango
- 1 Hatch Chile
- 3 Roma Tomatoes
- 4 Garlic Cloves
- 1 Lemon (squeezed)
- 1 Lime (squeezed)
- 1/2 White Onion
- The first thing you have to do is prep your hatch chile
- You need to roast it, I roast mine on my griddle on the stove. All you do is put the chile on the griddle and keep flipping it for about 10-15 minutes until it is completely roasted.
- Once roasted you want to peel the skin off and cut the top of the chile off. Now take the chile and split it in half and take all the seeds out.
- Next you want to cut your onion up into small pieces, slice your tomatoes in half and add them to your blender.
- Next add in your chile, your peeled mango and garlic. You want to blend for about 2 minutes. After blending I add the squeezed lemon and lime to the blender.
- You want to blend again for about 2 minutes.
- Now get some tortilla chips and....ENJOY!! : )
