    Galley Wench's Note:

    Great as a main dish or appetizer. The pork can also be cooked in a crock pot. Mangoes can be substituted VERY successfully . . . guess that would change the name of the recipe!

      This was really good!!! I did make some changes; I left out most of the peppers (I am a whimp and cannot handle the heat) and skipped the black beans because I do not care for them. This dish still had a ton of flavor and went over well with my husband--even my 19 month old son ate it!!
