I loved this BUT they left me to wonder when I added the olive oil and scallions, I added it as it started to simmer.The flavors were incredible, also didn't have black beans but used pintos instead. I am trying to decide when I can add this to a dinner party menu. It is a keeper.

This was really, really good! I could not stop eating it! The smokey bacon with the mangoes was a terrific combo. And the ginger and lime with the peppers was great. I used 2 tbsp of olive oil to fry the bacon, then I pulled it off the burner and added the garlic. Then followed everything the way it is written. I served it over a little rice. It makes a lot of delicious broth! I love clams and this was a great way to make them. Thanks for a great recipe! Sue
