Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Cassava flour pancakes — Make sure to heat them gently to avoid them becoming too crispy.
  • Black beans — If using canned black beans, rinse them thoroughly before cooking to reduce sodium content.
  • Mango and pineapple — Choose ripe fruits for the best flavor and sweetness.
  • Jalapeno pepper — Adjust the amount according to your desired level of spiciness.
  • Fresh cilantro — Use it as a garnish for a burst of freshness.

Tips & Tricks

  • If cassava flour pancakes are not available, you can use corn tortillas as a substitute.
  • For added flavor, you can sprinkle some crumbled Brazilian cheese (such as queijo coalho) on top of the black beans.
  • If you prefer a milder salsa, remove the seeds from the jalapeno pepper before chopping.
  • Serve with a side of Brazilian hot sauce (such as pimenta malagueta) for an extra kick of spice.
  • To make it heartier, you can add slices of avocado or a dollop of sour cream on top.
