"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."
"This was the hit of my luau party! Two people asked for the recipe."
"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!"
"The hardest part about this recipe was to stop the, erm "preliminary taste testing" and stick it in the fridge overnight. Even unchilled without letting the flavors meld together, it was fabulous! Unfortunately, I had a few problems. The first was that the mango I bought for it was icky. I ended up using a can of drained tropical fruit salad and chopping it up a bit more. It also turned out that my powdered onion was actually onion salt, so I sort of used minced, dried onion and the onion salt. If it tastes better with the proper ingredient, I don't think I'll ever get it chilled. I left off the jalapenos because we're either wimpy or we have stomach problems. This recipe definitely rates a do over! I can't see me serving a chili powder or cumin based chicken dish without it ever again."
"Amazing, amazing. I've made this about 5 times, and there are never any leftovers. Such a hit, terrific flavors, and an elegant presentation!"
