Cinco de Mayo or Cinco de Mango: It's Go Time!
If your like me and lived south of the border for 4 years you love mango`s. Not that you want to know this but I have eaten as many as 10 mango`s in a single sitting - that`s how good they are!
Recently I had the opportunity to speak to the National Mango Board www.mango.org and was excited to find out that they had created some recipes that contained bacon. One of the recipes they prepared for Cinco de Mayo (Cinco de Mango) as they like to call it was a Mango and Bacon Barbecue Pizza. First off, as it contains bacon, you know it will be good and the sweetness of mango - wow what an irresistible combination!
Thank you Ingrid Hoffmann for preparing this recipe.
