  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro or green onion

Peel mangoes and dice em.

Cut all ingredients into cubes. Mix with salt, lime and lemon juice.
I skipped on the chili peppers. Just added a few dashes of cayenne pepper. It makes about 2 servings or 1 large one:) Enjoy with your favorite chips :-)
