    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Nayarit is a state on the Pacific Coast of Mexico where seafood is abundant and the flavors are ample. These stuffed chilies are a popular local appetizer. The sweet mango and the spiciness of the poblano chiles pair really well in this recipe. This dish is served cold. If you like some heat these are wonderful, if you like them hotter add jalapenos.... I love the heat!!!

      I loved these! The filling cooled down the heat of the pepper and the vinaigrette is awesome! Great with tequila drinks!

      This recipe went over really well with my son and I, but it was a little too spicy for the rest of the family. I would never have dreamed of combining mangos and crab, but the flavors worked well together. The vinaigrette is a must with this recipe!
