2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon curry powder

  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 1-1/2-quart casserole; set aside. Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet; heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Add bell pepper; cook and stir 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in beans, sausage, rice and cilantro.
  4. Spoon sausage mixture into prepared casserole; cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes or until heated through.
  5. Peel mangoes; remove seeds. Chop enough flesh to measure 3 cups. Combine mango and remaining ingredients in large bowl.
  6. Spoon sausage mixture onto serving plates. Serve with mango salsa. Garnish, if desired.
