YUM! Made this for a party and it was a hit! I used 3 fresh mangos (to even out the beans and onion) and served with baby greens and tortilla chips. DELISH! We will definitely be making this again in the future.

Perfect for a summer BBQ! I always make my beans from dried, adding lots of onion and spice. This probably added great flavor to an already good recipe! Also, it's a trick for those who have time or on a budget (or both!). I too used frozen mango, 3/4 of a 10oz. bag (I nibbled!) and it wasn't enough. If you used frozen mango, use the whole bag, or even double it for extra yumminess! The colors were so attractive (I did not puree, served it as a salad that some people did put on chips, but others ate as is). Just a fresh, fresh dish!

I halved this recipe for a party and added a half bag of frozen petite white corn. I also used about 3/4 pound frozen mango chunks, chopped up, for the fresh mango, and one whole bunch of cilantro leaves, chopped. Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. Thanks for a great recipe.

Mmm, tasty and healthy! I halved the recipe but kept the amounts of garlic, jalapeno, and mango the same. Should've used less onion but otherwise it is very good. So far it has been eaten plain, and in a pita with arugula (try it, arugula goes great with this stuff!) and I think the rest will probably go with some chicken as suggested by Vote_For_Pedro. P.S. As a main meal, the servings are considerably less than what is stated. (1/2 recipe = 4 or 5 servings I'd say.)

Great fresh flavor in this recipe! I chopped the veggies a bit larger to make mine a salad, but a quick pulse in the processor would make this a fantastic salsa too. The mango really adds something special to this, giving you a little sweet to go along with all the other wonderful flavors. LOVE this stuff!!!

This is such a great recipe! Go easy on the onion, though... If it's a big onion, only use half.

This is an excellent salsa. I love the contrast of the spicy jalapeƱos and the sweet mangos. The beans give an excellent texture and make it very filling. I stirred a bit of habanero jelly into the mix for added kick. The leftovers will top grilled chicken, or be tossed with some greens for a quick lunch salad. Thanks. :)
