How I plan my shopping trips is like this: First, I create a list of items we use on the regular. Second, I pick up items that are on sale at the store. Then when I get home, I research recipes with those sale items and use it for our meals.
It’s pretty crazy and complex, especially if you are trying to meal prep, but I gave up on that ages ago.
So when I saw mangoes on sale this week, I decided it was time for some mango black bean salsa.
This salsa only requires a few ingredients, which makes it perfect. You can also change out ingredients as you see fit and make it your own.
Start by opening, draining, and rinsing the black beans. You can let them sit in the cullender while you cut the remaining ingredients.
Cut the mango, onion, pepper, and jalapeno into small pieces.
You can also throw them into the food processor if you wish. Once everything is cut, drizzle the mixture with the lime juice.
Stir it together then let it sit on the counter at room temperature to allow the flavors to blend together, then store in the fridge. Yields 3 cups.
So what do you think? Are you going to try it?
