Refreshingly sweet with a touch of fire…
If you’re looking for a salsa that pairs perfectly with fish tacos, look no further than this jalapeño mango salsa recipe. It’s simple to make, yet full of tropical sweet and spicy bite. It’s perfect as a topper or side for your fish taco favorites, but don’t stop there. Jalapeño mango salsa is just as delicious with grilled chicken and pork, and during grilling season it can easily double as a refreshing salad-like side to your grilled meats.
You can increase the heat by adjusting the number of jalapeños used (cut back on the bell pepper equally to keep the green pepper ratio just right). Or try using serrano peppers, which are noticeably hotter than jalapeño peppers, but with a comparable bright bite.
If you enjoy jalapeño mango salsa, don’t miss these other fruity options. Our spicy blueberry salsa is sure to please with its earthy, sweet, and tart flavor. And speaking of tart, jalapeño salsa verde delivers just that with plenty of tomatillo tanginess. Or if you’re ready for a major step up in spiciness, try this peach habanero salsa. It’s a big heat jump, but you have to love that habanero sweetness paired with peach.
