Blue Corn Nachos With Mango Salsa

A party meal your friends will talk about.

Whether it’s Super Bowl, basketball game or a party you host, this Blue corn nachos with mango salsa recipe will be the star of the event.

In this nachos recipe, we opted for blue corn tortilla chips. According to WebMD, blue corn tortillas have less starch than yellow corn ones, lower glycemic index, and more protein.

On the other hand, the team Go Ask Alice! of Columbia University suggests that frying the tortillas stripes them from their antioxidants, though they are still more nutritious than yellow corn tortillas.

Our mango salsa recipe is different than the classic salsa you find in the store. It has a sweet taste with a hint of caramel. Cilantro gives the salsa a complex, aromatic flavor that pairs well with the mango.
