A unique-for-me way to eat my favorite fruit - mango. My ancho didn't puree very well so after heating it with the tomato sauce, I put it back in the blender to smooth it out. Not being a bell pepper lover, I stayed with the ancho theme and used a minced poblano pepper. For the salsa, I used recipe #209936 to go for mango overload. ;-) Thanks for sharing this easy and tasty recipe!
