Mango Dipping Sauce, Hacked
This is the easiest, one-ingredient dipping sauce that can go with anything and can be spiced, salted, and seasoned to your liking. Make a batch, grab a bag of chips, and head to your front porch -- summer, here we come!
Ingredient: 1 can of mango juice/nectar (approximately 10 ounces is enough)
Pour all the mango juice into a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil. Boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally so that the juice does not bubble over. After approximately 10-15 minutes, the mango juice should have reduced to a quarter of its original volume. Remove the sauce from the heat and allow it to cool. Once slightly cooled, you’ll be able to see if the syrup has reached the desired consistency. (I like it to have the consistency of sweet and sour sauce.) If the syrup is too thin, boil for another 3-5 minutes.
The syrup will be sweet and tangy. If you want a spicy kick, add in a pinch of red pepper powder, cumin power, and/or salt and pepper at this point.
Serves several. This dip goes well with chips, pita, fresh veggies, and dried crispy veggies.
