This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #makemangosalsa http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Mangos are part of my DNA. OK, so I can’t confirm that with any scientific research but between growing up seeing baskets of mangos arriving to my grandmother’s kitchen door to my current love of it in anything, I can safely say I have been crazy for mangos for as long as I can remember.
Luckily, each of my four children share that same love. So when planning the big menu for our Super Bowl party, I made sure to take the salsa everyone expects at a party to the next level. I went to Walmart and picked up a can of Del Monte Diced Mangos. You can sample them at select Walmart locations from January 22-25th!
I have a two minute mango salsa recipe that will be made for our Super Bowl fiesta and if I am short on time (there will be two types of wings being made among other things for our guests!) I can even ask my daughter to make it, it’s that easy!
Here’s what you need:
1 can (15oz.) Del Monte Diced Mangos in light syrup
1 Jar (24oz) Chunky Salsa (your favorite brand)
Here’s how you make the salsa:
Drain the mangoes and stir into salsa. (It makes about 12 servings.)
I also added 2 tbsp cilantro and 2 tbsp fresh lime juice.
Since my children love corn and black beans I knew this would be a kid friendly salsa even adults would enjoy. And the freshness of cilantro — which we regularly put on tacos and in our soups — was an added bonus to this already quick recipe. It gave our mango salsa a bit of extra flavor!
My daughter was in the kitchen with me as I did a test run of the salsa and she couldn’t wait to try it. Something tells me this mango salsa is going to be a hit on Super Bowl Sunday! (By the way, Del Monte has Pinterest board full of game day snack inspiration if you still need ideas.)
I paired my mango salsa with Utz restaurant style tortilla chips. Know what else is a great pairing for chips and salsa? Entertainment! The Book of Life DVD is available at Walmart on January 27th. Just in time for the big game. While my children saw it at the movie theater, I’m thinking the DVD would be a great way for my children to enjoy the day while I’m getting things ready for our party guests.
