Spicy & Sweet Summer Salsa Bites

Spicy & Sweet Summer Salsa Bites
Sweet and spicy food just naturally goes with hot summer weather and cool drinks!  As we start to entertain more outside, I love to make appetizers that are easy to eat poolside. LA VICTORIA® Brand has just created a new Mango Habanero Salsa that is both spicy AND sweet; it’s absolutely addicting!

Large chunks of sweet mango mellow out the spice from the chili peppers in a gorgeous orange red salsa flavor combination.

I’ve created an easy appetizer recipe that can be ready in less than an hour for your ‘summer celebrating’ guests to enjoy.

My Spicy & Sweet Salsa Bites are not only a snap to prepare, but they are also pretty in presentation. Guests can easily grab them while socializing, but make sure to prepare several batches as these go fast! Thank you to LA VICTORIA® Brand for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Mango Habanero Salsa!

8. Spread tops of cooled bites with a small amount of sour cream and add cilantro leaves for garnish. I used a piping bag to put sour cream on as I had better control when putting it on!

Makes 24 servings. You can make two batches with the one jar of LA VICTORIA® Brand Mango Habanero Salsa. If you want to spice these bites up even more, simply put more salsa on top of the sour cream.

These are delicious served room temperature or chilled! You do not want to warm them up because the sourcream will run.
