This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #makemangosalsa http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
A few days ago, I was a called a “weird combo of girl next door and fashion model.” I totally get that my interest in football could confuse people because some people don’t think it’s a girlie hobby but usually after I explain I learned all I know about football from an ex it seems to make sense to them. Everytime he would talk football instead of tuning him out, I would listen, learn and loved how quickly I picked up knowledge about the sport.
It’s great having fashionable friends who are Gridiron Gals. When we get together to watch a game, it’s always a good time. That’s why with Super Bowl Sunday quickly approaching I decided to do a test run of a salsa recipe I planned to make for my friends. I went to Walmart and picked up avocados, Del Monte Diced Mangos and a 24 oz. jar of peach, pineapple chipotle salsa.
All I had to was drain the diced mangos and add them to the jar of salsa which was already tropical in flavor. The chipotle in the salsa added a little heat to the flavor and it tasted party perfect.
While that two minute process made about 12 servings, I thought it would be fun to make avocado cups for my guests to try the salsa in also. Pretty presentation at parties makes guests feel welcome. (Check out the Del Monte Pinterest boards for other food ideas for parties.)
For my test run, I haved a couple of avocados and placed some mango salsa inside each using a tablespoon. I think avocado goes with everything tropical so it seemed like a great match!
Not only was the recipe easy to make but it was so tasty. I know my friends will love it. And since it took so little time to make, I will be able to concentrate on more time intensive recipes in the kitchen before my guests arrive.
I also had an idea for a movie night use of the mango salsa. Chips and salsa in a margarita glass. So Girls’ Night watching movies, right?
As for a movie, The Book of Life comes out on DVD at Walmart on January 27th and while I would love to watch it with my friends, I don’t think all the planned Super Bowl cooking will allow for it before the game. But I’ll keep in close for after the big game is over and we aren’t ready to end the party quite yet.
