Sweet and spicy. Deep and smoky. These tender chipotle bbq pork chops get a bright sweetness from mangoes!
I love that when you eat a mango, you just feel tropical. Something about that bright, fresh burst of flavor can transport you to an island paradise in one bite.
It’s a beautiful thing.
Outside of the mental benefit of the momentary feeling of enjoying a tropical vacation, mangoes pack a ton of other (more well tested) health benefits.
As a source of Vitamin A and beta-carotene, they are good for your eyes. Like many fruits and vegetables, they are high in fiber, which helps with digestion and may lessen the risk of heart disease. (Women need 25g a day and men need 38g!) They are also a great source of Vitamin C and potassium.
Really, what’s not to love?
