Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl combine beans, papaya, mango, orange, and red onion. In a small bowl whisk together orange juice, olive oil, snipped cilantro, lime juice, salt, black pepper, and, if desired, cayenne pepper. Spoon orange juice mixture over bean mixture; toss to combine. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 24 hours.

  • To serve, spoon salsa into baked scoop chips. If desired, garnish cups with fresh cilantro or parsley leaves.


Tip: Section and chop the orange over a shallow dish; you should be able to reserve the juice for the 2 tablespoons needed in the recipe.
