Today’s Margarita is inspired by the mango paletas I made last week. As I peeled my mangos to make the paletas my tiny kitchen swirled with the aroma of a tropical paradise. I knew by Saturday my body, soul and brain would be in need of little tropical getaway. What better way to soothe away a stressful week than with a Mango Margarita? Enjoy!
Mango con Chile is popular street treat sold in Mexico. The Chile is either sprinkled on paletas, fresh fruit or incorporated into dried mango strips. Look for this chile in the latin section of your store. If the chile rim is not your flavor, rim your glass with salt and enjoy. Fresh juice is the key to this margarita and the lime juice the mango a flavor pop.
