Kicked Up Pepper Mango Chutney

Tammy Brownlow


While at the coast we ran across this little farmers market that had the most amazing peppers and mangos. I know traditional chutneys have curry in them, but I wanted something with a southern flare. I know chili powder and mango are a great combination. This would make a terrific appetizer paired with cream cheese and crackers. I think tortilla crisps would be pretty darn good also...enjoy!
