Mango on a stick is a fun way to enjoy fruit. Typically served in El Salvador as a street food. It is delicious with the sweetness of the mango, the spicy of the chili powder, the sourness of the lime and the salt. It is messy, but love in every bite. The combination of chili powder, lime and salt is really good on just about any kind of fruit of course you could just cut the mango up into pieces and it would taste just as good, it just makes it a fun presentation to serve it as a flower. Enjoy!
