Mango Salsa

Usually I’m all for condiments in a bottle, but mangos have been on sale lately and I wanted to something extra special to go with those black bean burgers.  This is what I came up with:

Mango Salsa

(this recipe makes enough for a crowd!  cut in half if you aren’t sharing)

2 cups frozen sweet corn (I like Trader Joe’s organic.  It’s like candy.)

1 ripe mango, diced

1/2red bell pepper, minced

1/4 red onion, minced

fresh cilantro, minced

lime juice (2 or 3 limes)

Slap Ya Mama! or other spicy seasoning blend, to taste

1.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl, squeeze lime juice over it, season with salt and pepper if you like.  But I really recommend Slap Ya Mama!

2.  Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight to allow the flavors to blend and the corn to thaw completely. Serve with burgers, chips, tacos, guac, etc.

    Habaneros are a great flavor with mangoes, if you want some thing a little (a lot) spicier. Also, I like the use of Slap Ya Mama, I had a friend bring me some as payment for petsitting and it is delicious. I haven’t seen it in stores around here, but then I haven’t really looked, or even been in a store for a long time. Angela would know better than me.

    Brooks brings me Slap Ya Mama from Louisiana because he’s a good boyfriend. I wish I was more adventurous with hot peppers. A friend suggested another one, hot bonnet or something? I have this terror of touching my eyes while cutting them, or putting too much in. Someday I’ll get over it, I guess. One thing at a time.
