      This is a wonderful and exciting recipe for the taste buds. I enjoyed this dish over a bed of cole slaw (just the cabbage mixture-no dressing). The cumin really works with the beans and mango.

      I thought this was wonderful. I like every ingredient listed and the combination works better than I could have imagined. I thought about putting it on rice, but held off until next time. I will add that I used a wonderful mango - it was yellow and came from Costa Rico. Thanks!

      The flavors are a great combination! Tasty. However, I really need to tweak the ratios. I found this to have way way too much onion, & not enough of the spices -garlic, ginger, cumin- to the amount of beans. I did have to use white onion, not red -- maybe that was the killer mistake? But also I used a little less than what was called for plus I didn't add any raw onions at the end. I also would have liked a lot more mango. I used Haitian Honey mangoes which are a smaller variety than the common Mexican ones in the US but I used twice as much to compensate & I still would've liked a lot more! The onions just overpowered the delicate mango flavoring! I'd say this serves twice as many as indicated btw! I will be making the combination of black beans & mangoes again, but I'll need to create my own version to suit my personal spice taste. Thanks for posting! 3 stars for too much onion | 4 stars for introducing the blk beans & mango combo to me. [Made & Reviewed for Iron Chef Tag]
