This easy yet wonderful stew can be made any time of year. The meat can be omitted without compromising the dish. Serve hot with a great bread and a nice spinach salad.

I omitted the meat and used frozen mango chunks and this was a great recipe! I also served it with the Brazilian rice (you saute the rice with onion and garlic before cooking it) and a spinach, cilantro, pineapple salad and it made a delicious meal.

My husband and I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I have made it for my cooking group, too, and froze the stew in 6 cup batches, and it turns out beautifully. You can just pop the frozen stew into your crockpot and lunch/dinner is ready in a few hours. The colors of this stew are also amazing. I like to use one can of petite diced tomatoes and one can of diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of the hot green chili pepper. It just saves me from having to dice a spicy pepper myself.

This a absolutely and BY FAR the most delicious stew I've ever made. I thought initially that my family wouldn't like it because, well, mango + beans + ham + cilantro? But I got compliments all around for the absolute amazing flavor! This collection of tastes are fantastic, I couldn't believe it. Now I am throwing a little dinner party JUST so I can serve this and soak up all the compliments! SO easy to make too.
