Sunny Caribbean Black Bean and Mango Dip

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 0 mins

With a seasoned cream cheese base and a black bean, mango, and jalapeno topping, this dip is flavorful, light, refreshing, and colorful. Best made a day ahead, and great served with large tortilla chips(I like Tostitos white corn, restaurant-style chips), rum drinks, beer, Margaritas, and fruit drinks.

This recipe deserves a perfect score. Brought this to a bbcue & even the picky eaters loved this. Really enjoyed the combination of spicy & sweet. You really couldn't tell there was mango. however, I felt it was an important part to round out the flavours. The only thing I changed... I didn't have fresh cilantro so I added a tiny frozen cube to the dip part. Great recipe, thanks so much for sharing.

Wonderful combination of flavors--we loved it! I didn't make any changes, other than scaling the recipe down a bit. Served with the Tostitos you suggested and Margaritas (Recipe #98221), it really hit the spot. :) Thanks for posting!
