How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.

  2. To prepare chips, lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray. Combine the chili powder, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over tortillas. Cut each tortilla into 4 wedges. Arrange wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 7 minutes or until crisp and golden.

  3. Preheat broiler.

  4. To prepare salsa, discard the husks and stems from tomatillos. Remove stem from jalapeño. Place tomatillos, jalapeño, onion, and garlic on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 8 minutes or until the tomatillos and onions are lightly charred (about 8 minutes), turning once; cool.

  5. Peel garlic. Place garlic, tomatillos, jalapeño, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until ingredients are coarsely chopped. Place tomatillo mixture in a large bowl; stir in mango. Serve with chips.
