Ghost Mango Chutney

I found this recipe online to make a Ghost Pepper / Mango Chutney that would go great on pork or chicken. You can add or decrease the amount of Ghost Pepper that you use to taste, as this will make for a spicy sauce.  A Ghost Pepper or Bhut Jolokia is about 6-10 times stronger than a Habanero, just to give you something to think about.
