Cook's Notes

Choose mangoes or papayas that are ripe, but not too soft. Either a sharp paring knife or a vegetable peeler work well for peeling the fruits.

    fresh fruit with chili and salt is a common snack in all of mexico. there are vendors selling this treat outside of schools and churches,walkways etc. we also put lime juice with the chili and salt. other fruits and vegetables we eat like this are jicamas,oranges, tunas (cactus fruit),carrots,cucumbers,pineapple and papaya. try this mixture over potato chipswith alot of lime.
