Mango Madness! My Mango Serrano Sauce!


One of my favorite summertime fruits! Actually one of my favorite anytime fruits. 
The Farmers market has loads of Mango's right now. I have been finding great prices. Last year I made Mango salsa and loved it. I wanted to try and make a hot sauce this year and I have. This Hot Sauce can also be a brushed on chicken and shrimp. My family and I will also be using it on fish tacos for a fresh and lighter flavor!

One of the things I love about this recipe is how easy it was to make. Not too many ingredients required.

Here is what you need!

3 Carrots  (peeled and diced)
10 Serrano's (use less if you don't like heat)
6 cloves of garlic (roughly chopped)
4 cups of Mango's (about 5 depending on size)
1 tablespoon Kosher salt
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

In a saucepan, you want to start out with your chopped up Carrots, Serrano's and Garlic cloves and enough water to cover your ingredients. Bring to a rapid boil for 5 minutes. Turn your burner down and let the veggies simmer until carrots are tender. 

Caution: Make sure you are in a well ventilated area when the peppers are boiling, it can small strong!

While your veggies are getting tender cut up your mango's! If your mango's are real juicy try to save as much of the juice as possible to add with your chopped mango's.

Once your veggie blend is tender add to your food processor. Blend the veggie until smooth. 
Then add your mango's and blend until almost smooth. When mixture is still a bit chunky add the salt, apple cider vinegar and lemon. Then continue blending until completely smooth. 

Poor into jars. I processed for about 15 minutes in a water bath! I love the sound of Ping!

This recipe makes about 2 quarts of sauce!

Do you love Mango's?
How do you use Mango's?
I would love to hear your ideas!

Happy Canning!!!


  1. Gonna try this! Recently discovered mango's go well with red pepper. Put them together in a corn & black bean salad.. YUM.

    Do you have a mango salsa recipe then?

  2. I made a mango chutney once with a few mangos I got at the store. How much do you pay for yours? They are still like a dollar a fruit here.

  3. I do have a mango salsa from last year! That salad sounds yummy!

  4. Oooh, I love mangos. I'll have to make this sauce. Delicious.

  5. Where do you get your canning jars? That is exactly what I want!

  6. OMG that looks SO GOOD! I love mangoes and I love a little spice. I generally buy magoes frozen (no sugar added) from Trader Joe's or Aldi and eat them on yogurt.

  7. Same thing I am doing with blueberries. But this mango session, I made a mango chutney with a few mangoes I got at the store with some of the discounts.
