Mango Habanero Margarita

We have had these and let me say that you will notice the heat right away. Habaneros have more of a gradual warmth, if the habanero is too hot for you then you might want to try this recipe with our candied jalapeños. We found this delicious recipe at Chili Pepper Madness and just had to share.

  • 3 mangos
  • 2 large lemons
