I never used to be a big lover of pico de gallo, but now I’m a huge fan. It’s such a delicious healthy addition to any meal. The traditional style is great, but this mango version is perfect for the summer with it’s fresh fruity flavor. Pile it on top of a taco or simply scoop it up with tortilla chips and you’re in for a tasty treat!
Mango Pico de Gallo
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1/4 red onion, diced
1 small jalapeño, deseeded and minced
2 mangos, chopped
Juice from one lime
Dash of salt
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Add additional salt or cilantro to your liking. Refrigerate until ready to serve and enjoy!

This fruity drink would be mighty tasty for any upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebrations! The fresh mango is absolutely delicious and the drink is so refreshing. Which is nice because in our home, we try to just use our fans versus the A/C for as long as possible. This is starting to get hard, given that we live in Texas and I’ve had the oven on most of the day! I know we’ll give in soon enough, but in the meantime, we’ll keep enjoying some more cool drinks to ease the heat.
3 oz tequila
1 1/2 oz triple sec
2 oz orange juice
1/2 oz simple syrup (equal parts water & sugar mixed together)
2 to 2 1/2 cups crushed ice
4 oz fresh or frozen chopped mango
Salt or sugar, for rimming (optional)
Yield: 2-3 servings
Combine the mango, tequila, triple sec, orange juice, and simple syrup in a blender. Add in 2 cups of ice an blend until smooth. If desired, add additional ice to achieve a thicker consistency. Serve in chilled glasses rimmed with salt or sugar (optional). Sip and enjoy!
