The Big Game is coming up and that means entertaining. Entertaining means food and lots of it. But that also means a lot of work for me. I love cooking but cooking for a crowd is tough and it requires a lot of time.

In the past few years, I have gotten to the point of finding quick and easy snacks that I can make for the Big Game. I don't want to spend all my time making food. I want to be able to serve up something quick yet something delicious and then spend the rest of the time with friends and family.

One of my signature dishes is shrimp ceviche. I make it from a recipe passed down to me from my abuelita. It is one of my favorite things to make and eat for any party. It is a little time consuming. You have to marinate raw shrimp in lemon juice overnight and add the ingredients. It tastes better if it sits for a while so itis not an quick easy dish. I found a way to make it into a 2 minute ceviche salsa instead. It takes no time at all to make. It is still pretty delicious.

I wanted to make it with a twist so I picked up some Del Monte Diced Mangos at Walmart along with the other ingredients I needed. Adding a little sweetness to a spicy dish adds a whole other level of taste to the dish.

Here is how I made my 2 minute Mango Ceviche Salsa:

Dice the avocadoes, shrimp, onions and cilantro. 

Add the chunky salsa to a bowl.

Drain the diced mangos.

Add the mangos to the salsa. Add the lemon juice as well. You can also use lime juice. 

Add the diced onions, cilantro, avocados, and shrimp to the salsa. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Since I am using the ingredients from my Shrimp Ceviche, I add a splash of my favorite Costa rican sauce to the mix. (Salsa Lizano is the Worcestershire sauce of Costa Rica. It is used in almost all the dishes and I always have a few bottle at the house!) Mix the ingredients and serve with chips. 

If you are having a party for the Big Game, make a two minute salsa to make your life easier. It is spice and sweet. The diced mango makes it sweet. Adding fresh ingredients like the avocado, onions and cilantro makes it pop! The shrimp make it hearty and adds a nice surprise!

While you are enjoying the game, remember to get some DVDs for the kiddos. One of my favorites is “The Book of Life” available on January 27. The kids will love it. Be sure to check out more delicious recipes on the Del Monte Pinterest page!

Del Monte Diced Mangos mixed with chunky salsa makes the perfect Super Bowl Sunday snack! Convenient, healthy, and easy-to-make. It gives any plain salsa a little bit of sweetness and pizazz!! Jazz up your salsa!!

You can also serve the salsa in the tortilla chips and make mini appetizers! It is the perfect bite!

Remember to head to Walmart stores on 1/22 to 1/25 because there will be a sampling event taking place at select stores. “Book of Life” DVD available at Walmart on 1/27!


  1. This sounds delicious. We have a can of mangos in the cupboard, so may have to try this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow! This is first I've heard of mango in a can, it is a good trick. This is a wonderful recipe whether you use fresh mango or canned - it looks sooo good!!!

  3. I really like this easy and delicious Mango Ceviche recipe. This is a good one to make for Super Bowl Sunday. It looks so pretty and mangoes are so delicious and help balance out this dish!

  4. I don't know what rock I've been living under, but I've never seen canned mango (and I see at least one other commenter says the same thing, so I don't feel too bad about it!). I'll be looking for it at the store, for sure. And look how clever you are, turning your time-intensive ceviche into a quick and easy recipe. :-)
