PINEAPPLE: helps strengthen your gums and keeps your teeth healthy and strong.
« Habanero Pineapple Salsa»
• 1 pineapple
• olive oil or cooking spray
• 1 or 2 habaneros ( depending on how spicy you like it)
• 1 red onion
Start by cutting the pineapple and onion into slices. Spray or brush olive oil onto the onion and pineapple. Then grill with the habanero for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until it is fully cooked.
Then cut the habanero up, carefully holding it with your tongs. This is very important because the habanero chili is very spicy. If you mistakenly touch your face after touching the chili it can cause a burning sensation. Next, take the cilantro and cut it up and place in the same bowl. Mix it together and add salt to season.
«Chipotle Mango Salsa»
• 2 mangos
• 1 red onion
• 1 canned chipotle peppers
• salt for seasoning
Cut the onion into slices and lightly grill. While the onion is grilling cut the mangos into cubes. Place into a bowl with the chopped up cilantro and onion.
