Are you ready for the Big Game next month? If you’re hosting a party, I’ve got a delicious recipe for a Spicy Pineapple Mango Salsa that is the perfect tropical dip for chips and is easy on your party budget! It’s been rainier than usual here in Los Angeles, so I wanted to whip up something a little tropical with a bit of heat and with fresh pineapple, mangos, jalapeños, onions, and peppers, this salsa nails it! Best part? I was able to purchase everything for this recipe at the 99 Cents Only Store! Do you “do the 99”? I love hitting up the 99 Cents Only Store around any new holiday to see what candy, decorations, and party supplies they have. There is always something new and exciting at the 99! You never know what you’ll find when you “do the 99.”
While I’m there, I also stock up on fresh fruits and veggies for the week which allows me to eat healthy on a budget! Just today I spotted a pack of organic blueberries for 99 cents which sells for two to three times that at the grocery store! But back to this salsa … If you’re feeding a party, you’ll win big with this tropical salsa! Plus, you can totally mix it up and make it your own! Can’t find fresh mangos? Add in tomatoes! My exact recipe is below, but remember, you don’t have to stick to it exactly!
- 1 pineapple, ½-inch dice
- 2 mangos, ½-inch dice
- 3 bell peppers, red, orange, and yellow for color, ½-inch dice
- 1 red onion, ½-inch dice
- 2 jalapeno peppers, finely minced
- ½ tsp salt
- tortilla chips for serving
- In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, mango, bell peppers, onion, jalapeno, onion, and ½ teaspoon salt.
- Stir to mix together and let sit for at least 10 minutes in the refrigerator so the flavors combine. Serve with tortilla chips.
You can be extra festive and serve the tropical salsa in a hollowed out pineapple bowl! Simply cut the pineapple in half, stem as well, then use your knife to outline the bowl and cut lines across it. Then use an ice cream scoop to hollow it out. The pineapple that I scooped out wasn’t useful for the salsa (since I couldn’t dice it into uniform pieces, but I saved it for a snack: pineapple and cottage cheese!So yeah, you can serve it in a pineapple bowl, but as an FYI, this recipe makes enough to feed a small crowd, so have an extra bowl ready for the refills! Just for reference, that’s a small mixing bowl below! You get a lot of bang for your buck with this recipe! And if you’re afraid you’ll have leftovers, simply set some aside in the fridge and use it as a topping for chicken or pork for dinner the next night! I also 99’d the soda, soda pitcher, chips, and football chip bowls! Oh! And the toy football that I spray painted gold! I love how the 99 is a one-stop shop for parties where you can grab food, serve ware, and decorations!
I served my salsa with both traditional tortilla chips AND these Sweet Maui Onion Potato Chips! I couldn’t resist that pink bag! Plus I think the “maui” was making me think they were made for this salsa! Verdict? They were!I also loved how the 99 had a Game Day Shopping List in the aisles to help you remember all your party supplies! 99 Cents Only Stores have all of your favorite name brands at a price that can’t be beat.
