How to Make a Mangonada at Home

​​Source: Gaspachos USA




  • 1 cutting board
  • 1 sharp knife
  • 1 wide cup


  • 1 large mango
  •  1 tamarind stick
  •  Gaspachos chile, lime & salt mix
  •  Chamoy sauce

Preparing the mango

  1. Pick a large mango. We used a Kent mango for this recipe.
  2. Wash, rinse and cut a thin slice from each end of the mango.
  3. Stand your mango on your cutting board using the wider end as a base. Peel from top to bottom.
  4. Curve the knife to align with the mango and peel off all the mango.
  5. Stand the mango and position your knife to one side of the seed, slice down lengthwise along each side.*Note: If your knife hits the seed, move it slightly away from the center and slice down again.
  6. Cut the narrow sides of the mango. Follow the curve of the mango as you slice down to get all of the mango.
  7. Cut your mango into 1 to 2 inch pieces.
