    It’s safe to say that many of us had resolutions to eat healthier this year, and our first obstacle is coming up in a couple weeks: the Super Bowl. Whether or not you’re in to sports, you might be corralled to a game-day party for the sake of gathering with friends. What’s on the menu? Pizza, chips, wings, sodas… the temptation will be real. Luckily, I’ve got you covered with this addicting mango salsa for a healthy super bowl snack that will help you avoid the junk food buffet.

    This mango salsa will take care of your munchies and sweet tooth without sacrificing your clean eating streak. Mangos are a superfood, packed with vitamins A, B6 and C (making them fantastic for your skin and hair!). They’re also a good source of fiber, which promotes digestive health. Low cal and yummy, mangos make for a healthy and satisfying snack.

    Perhaps it’s the Latina in me, but I can never get enough mangoes! I remember eating a lot of them as a kid when my grandma grew her own on a tree in her yard. One thing I never could get the hang of was dicing them. The pit is so much longer than in other fruits, and makes it a bit tricky. So for this recipe, I used a can of Del Monte Diced Mangoes I found at Walmart which will really make the process quick. (Try before you buy: there will be sampling events in select Walmart stores from 1/22-1/25)

    For the salsa base, I’m using La Victoria Thick ’n Chunky Salsa in Mild— you can use your own favorite salsa, but I would suggest keeping the sodium level at under 200 mg. Chopped cucumber and avocado help balance the taste between the sweet and savory flavors. The healthy fats found in avocado are also great for the hair, skin and nails, giving this salsa an extra beauty boost.

    You can pair this delicious and nutritious mango salsa with your favorite tortilla chips, or you could bake your own. I like making my own chips with whole wheat tortillas, olive oil, and salt. Either way, this snack is super easy to put together and perfect for keeping cravings quenched on game day.

    Confession: I’m usually not wrapped up in watching the actual Super Bowl, aside from the commercials and half time show (omg, SO excited for Katy Perry!). I’ll probably be doing my own thing for most of the game. I’ve been meaning to see Book of Life, which is being released at Walmart on the 27th, so I can pop that into my laptop if anything. Either way, I’ll be happy as long as I’ve got my healthy mango salsa.
