I liked this recipe -- it was unusual and tasty. For the mango salsa, I pretty much followed directions but added a LOT more ginger than called for. I thought it turned out really good, although a little sweeter than I usually like for a salsa. Maybe I'd add more lime juice next time. The chips were easy to pull together and went well with the salsa. Unfortunately, they softened up after spending a little time out of the oven. I'm not sure how to fix that...maybe leave them in the oven for longer (although they did seem crisp when I first pulled them out). Thanks for sharing the recipe!
