Got mangos? We’ve got recipes! This juicy fruit is the darling of the moment: it’s got tangy sweet flavor and is loaded with nutrients. Add it to recipes and it pairs just as well with grilled fish and tacos as it does with sweet preparations. In fact: over here we most often add it to everyday snack and dinner recipes instead of making it into desserts.

Here are all our top mango recipes for integrating this tasty tropical fruit into your everyday cooking! Of course there’s sweet and spicy mango salsa, perhaps the most perfect mango recipe around. Then there are more unique spins like hearty mango black bean chili and mango teriyaki skewers. And of course: don’t forget mango cocktails! Let’s get cooking, shall we?
