Sweet, tangy, and definitely lots of heat! A great salsa to eat with flaxseed tortilla chips or your favorite chip.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place habanero pepper, mango, and onion on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat evenly.
  3. Roast on the middle rack of the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Turn on the oven's broiler and roast for 5 more minutes. Move baking pan to the oven's top shelf; broil until onion and mango begin to brown and habanero pepper blisters, about 3 more minutes. Remove and slightly cool.
  4. Wearing gloves, remove stem from habanero pepper and place pepper in a small food processor or blender; add mango, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Season with black pepper and cumin. Pulse until salsa is combined and slightly chunky. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving for flavors to blend.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Spicy, flavorful, and delicious salsa! I made this for a potluck, and everyone loved it.

Made this for a salsa competition at work, and coworkers devoured it! It was gone. The heat comes on slowly and you can really taste the mango when you first put it into your mouth. NOTES: 1) The recipe ingredients call for vegetable oil, but you really need olive oil (see the directions); 2) I did not add as much salt as the recipe calls for. I adjusted this recipe for 30 servings, which called for 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons of salt! I added barely 2 tablespoons of salt, and that was perfect.

I made this salsa but instead of a habanero I used a homegrown Trinidad Scorpion Butch-T pepper. Given the spicyness of this pepper I doubled everything else. I was delicious! Next time I will reduce the salt because it was a tad salty for me!
