This is an AWESOME recipe. My husband not only downed several bowls of this, he took all the leftovers to share with his fellow graduate students the next day! One of the students lived in Brazil for two years and said this tasted just like something he would have eaten there. Since then I've had more than a few requests for the recipe :) I followed the recipe as written, using a tad bit more ham and chorizo than called for so I wouldn't have leftovers. I also used frozen mango added during the last ten minutes of cooking since my fresh ones were unripe. If you're tempted to skip the fresh cilantro or the chile pepper, don't! The cilantro pairs beautifully with the mango to give what would be a hearty, traditional stew, a very fresh, lighter, sweeter flavor. The Chile adds just the right amount of heat without detracting from the other flavors. Will definitely be making this again.
