Mango Bean Wraps

It seems like everyone is jumping on the Mango bandwagon theses days and with good reason.  Mangoes are a sweet, tasty and healthy fruit that adds a little diversity into your diet.

The internet is full of recipes using fresh mangoes, but I discovered my favorite way of using this fruit by making Mango Bean Wraps. 


Just the other day a food industry buddy of mine asked me if I liked Mangoes.  I reminded him that there was very little in the food category that I didn’t like and mangoes certainly were a fruit I could sink my teeth into.  With that he handed me a bag of eight mangoes, claiming that he had just purchased a case for a special order and had extra.  “They’re yours, enjoy” he exclaimed.

I took the mangoes home and suddenly realized that 8 mangoes were quite a bit and I needed to come up with a use for these beauties.  Check out my recipe for Mango Bean Wraps!  Make these and provide your family and friends with a truly unique meal.
