This is an amazing mango salsa recipe that you HAVE to try. So fresh and yummy (and healthy too!).

I usually double or triple the recipe because my kids eat a ton of this when I make it.  In fact, my 9 year old daughter will eat this by the gallon.. and I am not kidding!

It’s great served with grilled chicken or fish or eaten on it’s own with tortilla chips!

Note:  Some people have asked if there is CORN in the recipe… there is no corn in the recipe or the photo!  I used this awesome little cutter to get perfect little cubes of mangoes, onions, peppers and jalapeño!  What may look like corn in the photo is actually perfect little cubes of mango! :)

These were a huge hit with my kids and I loved them because they didn’t even realize I’d hidden a bunch of sneaky veggies inside!  I used orange and yellow peppers and diced tomatoes… get creative with whatever veggies you have on hand!

This is a super easy party appetizer!  Mushrooms filled with salsa and topped with cheese… couldn’t be easier but tastes so great!  It’s like pizza and mushrooms meet.. and have a baby! ;)

While these stuffed mushrooms are the perfect appetizer, they also make a great side dish to accompany chicken or steak!  Often I will make steak and salad and just throw a dish of these in the oven!

The best part is they only take a couple of minutes to prepare.
