Chips and salsa are a pretty popular snack in my house. The whole family is a fan, and we find ourselves snacking on it very regularly. When I’m busy, I’ll rely on store bought salsa, but when I have the time, there is nothing more amazing than freshly prepared, homemade salsa. Recently, I whipped up a mango salsa that was total perfection. It was fresh, light, sweet, and savory….and I couldn’t get enough of it.

It’s the perfect summer poolside indulgence. My kids and I finished the whole bowl in one sitting! The salsa itself is 0 Points, as it has no ingredients that count towards your Point allowance, but the chips are another story of course.

I need to be careful with those! A salsa recipe this good can have me easily indulging in too many chips. Alternatively, this would a great topper for fish, chicken, and salads. Get this tasty Mango Salsa recipe in before summer is over!

  1. Can you use frozen mango in the salsa recipe? I love the Baja Sol peach mango salsa

      I haven’t tried it, but I personally wouldn’t recommend it. Frozen fruit can tend to be mushy when it defrosts, so this would affect the texture of your salsa, making it soft and soupy.
