Mango Chipotle Salsa

This is a simple sweet and spicy salsa or salad made from ripe mangoes and chipotles.This salsa goes well on tacos or a side salsa.The recipe is very easy and quick and here it is.

Ingredients:
Ripe mango: atlest 1 peeled and chopped into cubes
Red onion: 1 medium cubed
Walnuts: handful chopped (optional)

Cilantro

Lemon juice
Salt
Chipotles in adobo :I used 1 medium size in the jar
Adobo sauce: 1 tsp+

Preparation:
Cube the mango and onion.Add in walnuts if using along with salt and little chopped cilantro.Add in chopped chipotles and chipotle sauce.Adjust the salt and squeeze lemon juice. Toss well and chill in the fridge for flavours to blend and serve garnished with more chopped cilantro.


As per spiciness you can add more chilles or adobo sauce.Walnuts are completely optional and I used them for the crunch.If you have cooked kidney beans then you can add these as well.The recipe or the steps are too simple and if you are a mango lover then you may enjoy this.The first taste I did not like as mangoes are low in my preference list.But I am a fan of chipotles in adobo and hence I kept the salsa overnight and then I loved it.Chipotle taste here is more than the mango taste or atleast I want it so.

When you try a spoonful,the heat and smokiness of the chillies is the first thing you experience followed by the crunch of walnuts(I may omit/replace them the next time) and then the sweetness of mango especially chilled cold mango takes away the heat.Two different taste that compliment each other.

Well, I think the salsa is just right for NCR:Mexican hosted this time at Lisa's.
