I used this exact Spicy Mango Lime Chutney on my Pulled Chicken Tacos recipe, but it works great on so many things that I decided to share the recipe on its own as well!
Dicing a mango is one of those things that no matter how many times I do it, I get it wrong and end up hitting the pit. Granted, the pit is huge, but it can still be frustrating! I have looked up the directions on how to avoid this before but I never remember when the time comes to cut one up. So, to save you the time and effort, I’ve looked it up again and am sharing the information right here! This Spicy Mango Lime Chutney is so good, I want to eliminate any excuses not to try it!

1. Stand the mango upright with the stem side down.
2. Place your knife about 1/4″ to the side of the stem. Slice all the way through. If you hit the pit, turn your mango 90 degrees and try again. Repeat with the opposite side of the mango.
3. To dice the mango, cut scores vertically and horizontally into your desired size. Push in from the skin side and peel or cut out the flesh.
4. You can attempt to remove any remaining mango flesh from around the pit as well.
If you’re like me and no matter how many times you do this, you still somehow mess it up, then try this Mango Slicer! I had no idea these even existed until I was writing this post!
As I was saying before, I used this on my Pulled Chicken Tacos, but it also goes great on just about any other meat as well! I would use it on grilled chicken or pork roast. It would make a great topping on salmon as well. I can also see using it as a side dish with any Mexican or Cuban-inspired food and most definitely along side Coconut Shrimp!
For kids, you can easily just omit the pepper. I usually just set some aside before mixing in the pepper. My son loves it!
I’d love to hear some other ideas on how you plan to use this! Leave me a comment down below, especially if you give this recipe a try, and let me know what you think!

- If you have trouble cutting a mango, try this Mango Slicer.
- Eliminate the pepper for a milder version. When I make this, I set aside a small amount for my kids before adding in the pepper.
- If you’d like you can add some diced red onion. It’s just not my own personal preference.
