Alphonso Mangoes. This time of year you'll need to use plain-or- 
garden mangoes, but on the other hand the weather is more amenable to  

(pinched from a thread in the Something Awful cooking forum, please  
excuse American units)

1 onion, chopped
5 or 6 cloves garlic, smashed
1 lb or so of sweet potato, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes, with liquid
2 14.5oz cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 mango, peeled and chopped
Large handful fresh coriander, chopped
Flour tortillas

As each step cooks, one can do the prep for the next step.

Then add the garlic, and go for a few more minutes.

Stir in the salt and the coriander, and remove from heat.

Serve with the tortillas.

for the move. We'll dig some out for you when we get a chance.
