Why We Love This Easy Pico de Gallo Recipe

We love fresh fruity summer salsas! They are perfect for scooping up with chips, spooning on grilled fish or chicken, and piling on big summer salads.

The best chunky salsas are loaded with just the right combination of sweet, salty, and absolutely essential IMO… A bit of spiciness. Like our Chipotle Corn Salsa with Roasted Chili, Peach Mango Habanero Salsa is bursting with bold spicy flavor in every scoop-able bite.

But because this easy recipe features ripe summer fruits, mango pico de gallo is even brighter and sweeter! We quickly roast the habanero peppers for maximum deliciousness, then mix together with chopped fresh peaches, mango, and crisp red bell pepper. Add the salsa trinity of onion, cilantro, and lime and you have a perfect pico de gallo for all of your summer barbecues and cookouts!

Ingredients Needed

  • Habanero peppers – seeded
  • Ripe peaches – peeled and diced
  • Ripe mango – peeled and diced
  • Red bell pepper – seeded and diced
  • Red onion – peeled and diced
  • Fresh cilantro – chopped
  • Lime – zested and juiced
  • Salt and pepper – to taste

Note: Roasting the habanero peppers mellows the spicy heat a little, but the heat intensifies as the salsa rests in the fridge.

If you are sensitive to spice, start with half a habanero pepper. If you love spice use 2 whole peppers.

Ingredients: Fresh mango, peaches, red bell peppers, habanero, lime, and onion.

How to Make Peach Mango Pico de Gallo

Pro Tip: I recommend using gloves when handling spicy peppers to avoid any accidental eye area contact.

First, quickly roast the habaneros. Set out a small nonstick skillet and a medium mixing bowl.

Cut the habanero peppers in half and remove the seeds. Place the peppers in a dry skillet and set over medium heat. Toast the peppers on both sides until lightly charred. Then turn off the heat.

Then zest all the green off the lime, being careful not to zest the bitter white peel. Add the cilantro and lime zest to the bowl. Juice the lime and add 1 tablespoon of juice to the salsa.

Once the habanero peppers have cooled, finely mince them into tiny pieces. Add to the salsa.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make pico de gallo less spicy?

Cut back, or entirely omit, the habanero for a mild peach salsa recipe.

To keep a bit of kick, swap habanero for slightly milder jalapeno. Remember to remove the seeds!

What can I substitute for cilantro in mango salsa?

If you aren’t a fan of cilantro or don’t have any on hand, sub with fresh parsley, green onion, or chives.

How long can you keep peach mango salsa in the fridge?

Store fresh pico de gallo covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. After that, the mango and peach start to lose their vibrancy.

Can you freeze peach and mango salsa?

You can, technically… However, I highly recommend that you do not. Peaches and mango will be unpleasantly soft when frozen and thawed.
