Tips Tips Tips

  • It’s totally okay to buy mango salsa from the store if you don’t feel like making some from scratch. Head straight to the fresh produce aisle at the grocery store for fresh organic salsa.
  • Replace the chicken with some grilled salmon or tofu for a vegetarian or vegan option.
  • Also, feel free to mix in some brown rice for a more carbohydrate-dense option.
  • If you have dietary restrictions, you can find other yummy gluten-free recipes on the website.
