If y’all have been watching my stories, you know I have a mango tree that is going gangbusters right now- sometimes I think having a fruit tree is just like having a boat, they are better when you have a friend who has one, you get the benefits without the extra work! Ha! So when Zatarain’s Smoked Sausage asked me to produce a hot dog that is reflective of where I’m from, I knew it had to be a “Floribbean dog”.

What is Floribbean you ask? Well, it is a term coined when you mix the term Florida + Caribbean= Floribbean. Florida’s proximity to the Caribbean islands gives it a distinctive food culture as it has influence from the flavors of the islands around it, not to mention the local ingredients that are uniquely Florida.

Nothing says Floribbean like a mango black bean salsa, as Mangos grow in our tropical environment, and Black beans are a staple in Florida with the Cuban influence running strong in our state.

Zatarain’s, known for their New Orleans inspired rice and seasonings, has now come out with Andouille smoked sausage, an awesome way to spice up your hot dog game! Zatarain’s smoked sausage is 100% pork and is junk free with no artificial colors or flavors, and no gluten or MSG. You can find Zatarain’s  Andouille Sausage and Zatarain’s Spicier Cajun Sausage at Sam’s Club and select grocery stores around the US so keep an eye out for them.

If you want the true Floribbean experience, try my mango black bean salsa that is the perfect compliment to the slightly spicy andouille sausage, pairing the slightly spicy andouille with the fresh flavors of mango, lime, black beans and cilantro on a soft Hawaiian hot dog bun for an epic flavor packed hot dog bite!

The great thing about this hot dog is that you can make a big batch of the Salsa and have it to munch on while grilling, it also works well as a side salad.

So how to make this mango black bean salsa to take you on a virtual vacation to Florida to taste this Floribbean dish for yourself?
