With party season on the horizon, we're starting to scheme up fresh, colorful recipes our friends and family are sure to love. And this year we've got mangos on the mind!
Thanks to their heavenly sweet flavor and versatility, mangos are perfectly poised for sweet and savory dishes alike (and it certainly helps that with six main varieties imported into the U.S. each year, they're always in season and available!).
If you're new to cooking with mangos, take a quick peek at how to choose a mango and how to cut a mango. Then it's time to get cooking! Your guests will love a simple Mango Chutney, Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Mango Salsa or Pork Mango Picadillo. Oh, and that's just the beginning!
Looking to gussy up your cheese board this holiday season? Mango chutney is the answer! It's super simple to make and wonderful paired with creamy brie or tangy blue cheese. Or, use it as a flavorful accompaniment to chicken, pork, or lamb.
Easy, fast and fresh: three words that are music to our ears when it comes to party planning. And these lettuce wraps don't disappoint: with stir fried chicken, fresh mushrooms and juicy mango, they're certain to be the MVP on the appetizer table.
When party season kicks into gear, time is especially hard to come by. And that's why we love this sautéed shrimp recipe topped with a fruity mango salsa and toasted coconut flakes. It takes only 1 pot and 25 minutes: we're sold!
A well balanced chicken salad is perfect on crackers or pita at your next party, and for a twist this version features delicious mango, crunchy toasted almonds, and creamy curried mayonnaiseContinue to 5 of 5 below.
We love heartier fare at a party, and this pork mango picadillo is just the thing! With ground pork, warm spices, fresh mango and cilantro, it's great served over rice or as a filling for mini tacos
