    This recipe is so light and fresh and delicious. We will definitely make again. It would be wonderful in the summer. Great weeknight meal.

    This was a good recipe. Wasn't sure how all of the ingredients would taste together but was very tasty. I made it exactly as directed but didn't add any salsa . To me it didn't need anything else. Poblano peppers are not hot but have a good pepper taste. Will make again.

    The taste of this recipe is great, but there is no way to get a quesadilla to stay together with all the fillings. Make it into a soft taco and it's great!

    This is one of my favorite recipes, although I did tweak it a bit. I use whole wheat tortillas, and I make it more pizza style. I lightly toast the tortillas under the broiler, load on the hot bean mixture, sprinkle on the cheese, lay the mango on top then broil till the cheese melts. I put on the avocado slices after they are done because I don't like cooked avocado. Anyway then you eat them like individual pizzas and they are amazing! Sometimes I also add extra veggies, more peppers, corn, ect.

    This was an easy, delicous meal. Could be an appetizer for a special occasion as well. The poblano chile adds a great spicy kick. When you are in the grocery store looking for the poblano chile keep in mind that they also call it a pasilla chile. Will def make again!

    These were great! I'll share with you my alterations: 1) I used La Tortilla Factory's large whole wheat tortillas (at 80 calories each they really cut back the calorie count and allow for extra indulgences in their place!) 2) I added extra cumin, salt, and a local meat seasoning which is a blend of your typical spicy items: cayenne, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, etcetera, and light sprinkle of Splenda. This really brought out the flavor of the mango which, without it, seemed to lose its sweetness after refrigeration and reheating. Also, don't skimp on the cheese as I tried to do. Fat free cheddar just doesn't cut it. Reduced fat sharp cheddar is definitely the way to go. If you REALLY want to cut back on the calories, use the La Tortilla Factory whole wheat tortilla and skip the avocado. I LOVE avocado but didn't really taste it all that much. Served with dollop of fat free sour cream, 1 T salsa, and sprinkle of cilantro. Delicious and so FAST to broil!

    Really tasty and easy to make. You could also use canned peaches in place of the mango for a slightly less expensive version. I also added red pepper flakes for a little heat and lots of fresh cilantro. Would make this again.

    Add cilantro, and you have an even better dinner.

    Add cilantro, roma tomatoes and FRESH mango when you add the avacado and you make it REALLY unforgettable.

    Was very good. Should have only put in broiler for 2 min since tortilla was a little too crispy on a couple of them. Otherwise, this is a favorite.

    Votes here at dinner were 50% 4 stars and 50% 3 stars. It's very good and very quick to put together. I probably won't pull it out for a special occasion, but I'll definitely be making it again. Next time, I'll probably add cilantro.

    These were unique and delicious. I really liked the sweet of the mango combined with the peppers. I added some jalapeno for extra spice, and also added cilantro as some other reviewers suggested. They do brown fast in the oven, so keep an eye on them. They did get really nice and crispy under the broiler though.

    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!
