Can you freeze fresh salsa?
Yes, but you probably don’t want to. When you defrost the salsa, it will be more mushy, but still tasty. So really it’s up to you!
Can mango salsa be made ahead of time?
Yes! I love making it ahead of time. I like to let it refrigerate for a little while to let the flavors combine really well. Make it up to a day before.
How long can mango salsa last?
I would eat it up with in 5 days. The first thing to go in the salsa will likely be the cilantro. But this salsa is so good you won’t have trouble eating it up!

- 1 can crushed pineapple 8 oz
- ½ medium yellow onions
- 2 habaneros seeds and stems removed*
- 1 jalapeno*

How to make mango salsa:
- Peel and chop mangos, making sure not to chop up the pit. Toss in a food processor.
- Remove stems and seeds from habanero and jalapeno. Toss in food processor.
- Add all remaining ingredients to the food processor or blender.* Process until the salsa is chopped to the size you want! The more process time the more liquidy the salsa will be. If you want chunky salsa, blend for only 5-10 seconds!
- If you have time, let this salsa sit in the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes. It will taste even more flavorful!
- Use as a salsa for chips or on your favorite tacos!
- Refrigerate all leftover salsa for 5 days.
*The more habaneros and jalapenos you use the spicier this will be! If you don’t want something too spicy go with 1 habanero and ½ a jalapeno. The habanero is really there just for flavor. With the seeds removed you won’t get a lot of heat. *If you don’t have a blender or food processor you will need to chop everything up by hand.
