TV Dinner: Tequila Mango Flambé

TV Dinner: Valentine's Day dessert

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It's Valentine's Day and Chef Chris Manning shows us a romantic dessert.

It’s called Tequila Mango Flambé.

The flambé part will impress your date if you do it right. The chef shows us how in the video.

Tequila Mango Flambé

3 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 mangoes, peeled, pitted & diced -- about 3 cups

Juice of half an orange

Pinch of cinnamon

Pinch of salt

2 ounces tequila

Melt butter in a sauté pan on low heat. Stir in sugar and let cook until it forms a syrup.

Add mangoes, orange juice, cinnamon, and salt and cook until mangoes begin to soften, about 2 or 3 minutes.

Add tequila off the heat and set it on fire to burn off the alcohol. Cook until sauce thickens slightly and all the alcohol is burned off.

Serve on top of vanilla ice cream. Top with whip cream and garnish with fresh berries.
