"I have never written a review for ANYTHING and now I find myself writing one for a mango chicken wrap.This recipe is SO easy, anybody can do it. I find myself making it quite frequently.One tip: be careful on the amount of jalapeno you use. The recipe suggests one whole pepper, but the only peppers available at my grocer are quite large. It never hurts to add a little at a time to taste. I also add more onion than it calls for, but that is personal preference.Also, you do NOT need a food processor. I have a pretty crummy blender and it does the job well. I would also recommend adding avocado slices!"
