Ingredients

For the Mangoes

  • 4 to 6 ripe mangoes (about 4 pounds total), peeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup packed dark-brown sugar

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Tortillas

  • 4 flour tortillas (6-inch)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)

Directions

  1. Bake mangoes: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice mangoes into 4 pieces; cut each piece into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Pour butter into a 9-by-13-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Add mango slices and sprinkle with brown sugar; toss to coat. Arrange slices in one layer. Bake, tossing once halfway through, until mangoes are tender and juice is bubbling, 45 to 50 minutes. While mangoes are baking, prepare tortillas.

  2. Prepare tortillas: Stack tortillas and cut in half. In a large bowl, toss tortilla halves with melted butter until well coated. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place tortillas on a large (or two small) rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle both sides with cinnamon-sugar mixture, and arrange in a single layer. Place in oven while mangoes are still baking, and bake until golden and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool.

  3. Assemble: Divide mango slices among plates. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired, and serve with cinnamon-sugar tortilla halves, broken again in half.

Cook's Notes

When slicing a mango, peel it with a vegetable peeler; then stand it upright. Using a sharp knife, starting with one wide side, slice off a piece, getting as close as possible to the large pit. Repeat on other wide side, then on the 2 narrow sides.

    This recipe is amazing!! I made it for Cinco de Mayo along with cilantro lime rice and chorizo quesidillas. I had the same problem with the tortillas getting burnt, so I am about to make them again so I am going to watch them more closely this time.

    Pretty good. The mangoes turned out well, but the tortilla was a little too crispy after only 9 minutes. This could be my fault, however, because I added more sugar since the 3 tbs suggested was not enough to coat the tortillas.

    Delicious! I used just baked mangoes as a side dish for a dinner, so I don't really know whether or not the tortilla is any good.
