You guys. I don't know why, but I've been gaga crazy for some spicy food lately. Maybe it's this crazy heatwave we're having, maybe it's because I'm becoming an old hag and my taste buds are gone, OR maybe it's because spicy food IS DA BOMB! That's it. Spicy food is da bomb. THIS spicy food, is some totes delish seasonal fruity salsa. Packed full of sweetness from cherries, tanginess (um..... my computer thinks this is not a word. YES IT IS COMPUTER!) from mango, acidity from fresh limes, and of course, some DA BOMB heat from serrano. It's spicy mango cherry salsa. And it's DA BOMB! Enough, enough.
Just thought I'd throw out there that my computer doesn't recognize the word tanginess, but has NO problem with thinking da bomb is an acceptable phrase. Grow up computer!
So, we are still in the middle of this insane freakin heat wave. Sheesh. I can't even type, my hands are too sweaty.
So, know what I ate this salsa with? SPICY FOOD! AAAAHAHAHAHA! Told you guys. I've lost it.
For reals though, I made some spicy pan fried shrimp, stuffed them into an avocado, then topped it with this delicious spicy goodness. Proooooooobably the best thing ever. Pssssshhht- DEFINITELY the best thing ever!
