There were some ingredients I just didn't have for this BUT what I subbed in for those things worked so well! I used green bell peppers instead of red and oranges instead of mangoes. The mangoes would have been just lovely with this with their added spice. I topped it with sliced avocado. I want try this again with mangoes. SO good! Read More
