Many may not live by bread alone but I feel like he could live on chips and salsa. I am constantly amazed at how many bags of tortilla chips and containers of salsa our family goes through in a month.
Our family is all about traditional restaurant-style salsa but I do love a good mango salsa for dishes like this slow cooker mango chicken. Sometimes I can get the kids to try salsa verde or pico de gallo or mango salsa (without the slow cooker and the chicken), but those moments are few and far between.
But I'm thinking that's going to change with this easy mango salsa recipe. I had no idea homemade mango salsa could be so easy! It's even easier than my popular cowboy caviar!
