Cayenne pepper is known for its immune boosting potential: besides the anti-inflammatory effects of capsaicin, cayenne is also an excellent source of carotenoids, including beta carotene - a powerful antioxidant that can help prevent free radical damage. Its high levels of vitamin A (two teaspoons of cayenne pepper provide 47 percent of the daily value for vitamin A) support immune function as well.

Our Ataulfo (aht-ah-uhl-foe) mangoes hail from Mexico. Sweet with a smooth, creamy flesh, these fruits are practically the ice cream of the stone fruit world. They make for a great “anytime” treat.
With a thin pit and few stringy fibers, they’re a breeze to work with in the kitchen once you learn how to cut them. Here are a few recipe ideas for Ataulfo mangoes.
Dress them up in (nearly) nothing. Where mangoes grow abundantly, people often season them simply with salt and pepper. We love cutting them into wedges and sprinkling with chili powder or adding a dollop of whipped topping.
Serve in salsa. Offer our rich Avocado Mango Salsa to company and you might have guests guessing at the secret ingredient. (Hint: it’s orange zest!) Or, top broiled fish with light and tangy Mango-Cucumber Salsa for a delicious main course.
Drink up. A yogurt-based mango lassi tastes like a “mango milkshake,” as chef Jamie Oliver describes it. But there’s no need to feel left out if you steer clear of dairy: we have a superb vegan version of the mango lassi.
A substitute for raw fish. Think about it: mangoes and fish share a similar dense, buttery texture, which explains why mango tastes so great in sushi. If you pair mango with its power twin (avocado – yeah!), you’ve got yourself a sushi roll filling that rocks.
What’s your favorite way to use mangoes? Please let us know in the comments section below. And remember, stock up on Ataulfo mangoes this Friday when they’ll be on sale for 69¢ each, or $9 a case.
May mango madness descend!
