Spicy Grilled Mango with Chiles and Crema

Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Lindsey Lower  

This quick dish is a study in balance: Sweet, spicy, sour, and salty flavors come together ­harmoniously and for maximum effect. Look for Mexican crema in the supermarket dairy section or in ethnic markets, or substitute crème fraîche. Serve with grilled steak, chicken, or pork chops.
