My husband and I love these! We made them a few times with mango and loved them. We always use fresh mango because pre-chopped is hard to find at our store. One night I sliced into a sour mango (it was the best looking one at the supermarket) halfway through the recipe. In a pinch, I sautéed some canned pineapple chunks (drained, then sautéed in the same pan I used for the rest of the recipe) to stand in for the mango, and we both decided we actually like the pineapple better. So if you're in a bind during non-mango season, try canned pineapple - it sounds a little crazy, but it's really good!
Poblano, Mango, and Black Bean Quesadillas
The sweetness of the mango balances the snappiness of the chile. Top quesadillas with fat-free sour cream and salsa, and serve with spinach and carrot salad.
