FOODHYPE: Chile Spiced Mango

Trader Joe's has something unusual in the dried fruit section: Chile Spiced Mango.

The mangoes are cut into strips, dried and coated with a blend of spices and chile powders. Personally, I would change the blend, but it's still pretty tasty. Plus the ingredients are all-natural: mango, paprika, sugar, salt, citric acid, and cayenne pepper.

They're great as a snack, and also go well in a curry... simply chop them into small pieces and toss them in the pot halfway through (along with some sliced almonds) and they'll impart a great flavor to the dish.
