Wasn't sure of the amount of Chile powder. I expected it to be sweet still and it wasn't.

This was very tasty, nice mix of sour, sweet, spicy. We used it like a chutney alongsome some pork. A nice, different use of the mango!

I thought this was really yummy and different. It's spicy, limey, and sweet all at the same time. I will make this again. I think it would taste better after being refridgerated .

As a child growing up un a Mexican household, these tastes were very common -lemon and chili sprinkled on fruit, but you have taken this concept to a new level by boiling the liqiud and submeging the fruit to coat. I must admit, I was hesitant about changing my "costumbre" but this was excellent. Thanks for sharing and tell your mother-in-law thanks also.

This was so good! I made it in the morning, cooled it and put it in the refrig. Then at dinner I just heated it up for a few seconds in the microwave. Wish I had doubled the recipe.

I only wish you had described how to cut up the mango in the recipe. I didn't know how and tried to do it my self, thinking it couldn't be that hard and didn't really do the mango justice. After looking at u tube videos on how to dice a mango, I wish I had another mango to try again. Anyway, I also, was a little worried about all the chili powder but it was really good. Going to let my boyfriend try it tonight and see what he thinks. He likes spicy stuff. Thanks!
