  1. PRO TIP: Use canned mangoes for the ultimate mango salsa. Drain canned mango before adding to salsa.
  2. PRO TIP: Only use as many habaneros as your taste buds can handle! For a more mild salsa, use jalapenos instead.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Stir together until completely combined. Store in an air tight container and chill for at least 1-2 hours prior to serving to fully develop the flavor. Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping on grilled salmon, chicken or pork.
