Habanero Mango: 6 Recipes to Die For
Habanero Peppers

Habanero Mango. An unlikely but delightful combination, indeed.

But isn’t that what creativity is all about? The ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate something novel.

Well, the serendipitous combination of these two unrelated concepts (a South American pepper and a South East Asian fruit), is nothing short of a culinary miracle. The lushness of the Mango, which certainly brings the sweet, neutralizes the intense spiciness of the Habanero, which certainly brings the heat.

And thanks to the blending of these god-given flavors, a whole new world of possibilities has opened up for those looking to tingle their tongues. See below the innovative ideas being cooked up by mixing savory mangos with stinging habanero peppers.
