Mango-Peanut Stir Fry (Recipe)

Winter weather always makes me more creative! I love experimenting in the kitchen, and 3 out of 4 times, the recipes are tasty. This is a new creation that I have only made once, so the measurements are approximate. A stir fry doesn’t really require precise measurements, so it should be simple to recreate in your own kitchen.
