I love a good salsa – especially one with simple ingredients like fruit, vegetables, and fresh herbs. I wanted to make a fruity salsa, but didn’t have fresh mangoes on hand, so I tried canned chopped mangoes and it was fantastic!

The canned mango pieces are soft and sweet, and taste great with fresh chopped vegetables in this easy salsa.  I served this homemade salsa with our excellent fish tacos topped with salt free pickled onions – yum!

​Ingredients for this Canned Mango Salsa

See the recipe card below for a full list of instructions and ingredient amounts!

Canned Mangoes

Canned diced mangoes are a great substitute for fresh. If you want to make a fresh mango salsa, but don’t have any ripe mangoes on hand, then you can absolutely substitute in canned!  You can find them at the grocery store.

The pre-diced mango is perfect for salsa too, and saves you from chopping!

Canned mango is also a great alternative to make salsa with all year long. It makes the best salsa in the winter months. It also has 0mg of sodium, which is a great alternative to fresh.

Bell Peppers

I used green peppers for this salsa as they are my favorite. You could also use red bell pepper or yellow peppers if desired.

Jalapeno

If you like it hot, adding some fresh jalapeno peppers are a great option! This recipe is what I could consider “medium” spicy salsa – it definitely has heat, but it’s not overpowering. For a less spicy version, use only 1 jalapeno.. For a spicier salsa, include the jalapeno seeds in the salsa for a fiery flavor.

Fresh Cilantro

I love the flavor of fresh cilantro, and it works so well in this salsa! If you don’t like the flavor of cilantro, you can substitute fresh parsley or basil instead.

​Onion

I used red onion for my salsa, but you could also use white onion or even a yellow onion instead!

Garlic

Fresh garlic cloves bring a ton of flavor to this great salsa! You could also use chopped jarred garlic or garlic powder if desired for a mild flavor.

Fresh Lime Juice

​Finishing this salsa with a bit of fresh lime makes it pop! You could also add a little lime zest too.

Notes

Make This Salsa More or Less Spicy

This recipe is what I could consider “medium” spicy salsa – it definitely has heat, but it’s not overpowering. For a less spicy version, use only 1 jalapeno, or replace it with a milder green pepper such as poblano or bell pepper. For a spicier version, include the jalapeno seeds in the salsa for a fiery flavor.
