    shrimp slaw sauce

    Mango Sauce In a blender, place all ingredients and blend until desired consistency. Pulse for a chunky sauce or blend until smooth for a thinner consistency. Tip: This is a very flexible recipe. Taste as you blend and add whatever you would like to taste more of. At Mi Cocina, we welcome the heat so we may go a little overboard with the spicy chili sauce!
