Tomato and Mango Salsa Recipe

My dad loves to dip chips on salsa and he even buys those expensive bottled salsas from the supermarket. I have nothing against salsas bought from the grocery stores, I just think making your own salsa is cheaper and gives you room to adjust the taste to your liking because some of these bottled salsas are too hot, tomatoes are too chunky and others just taste too herb-y. Making salsa is very easy and it doesn't require a culinary degree or extensive cooking experience. So my dear sister made some tomato salsa for us!

Bicol Express Recipe

These past few days, I have been craving for Bicol Express. So when we went to the market this morning, I bought 5 pesos worth of alamang, coconut milk for 20 pesos and siling pangsigang which costs 2 pieces for Php1.50. We have some pork liempo at home so I'm not sure what it costs. In this recipe I just used two slices of liempo and I think it is around 1/4 kilo but I'm just making an estimate. :) I really love to eat Bicol Express but I don't like it hot, so today we cooked something which may not be considered as Bicol Express at all! Of course, if you like it hot or extra hot, you can just add some chili peppers or siling labuyo.
