(BlackDoctor.org) — This hearty soup is so much more than your traditional chili! This tasty dish is made with a pork shoulder, white beans, chopped onion, fresh mango, and seasonings – a unique blend of flavors that make it unforgettable. (the pork can be substituted for another meat, such as chicken, if desired). Serve it in a bowl and top with sliced mango. Some warm corn bread on the side is the perfect addition to this meal.
