I Wonder What They Would Do on 'Iron Chef'

...with this stuff.
My mom recently gave me a whole bunch of this mango chicken sausage from Trader Joes. So I looked online for recipes and ideas about what to do with it. There wasn't much, but one suggestion included Marsala seasoning, and included potatoes to be put over rice. No thanks, and no thanks. Marsala strikes  me as a combination better fit for pumpkin pie and other desserts, not meat. I also don't think you need potatoes (a starch) on rice (another starch). But curry powder and red bell peppers sounded great!
Note: This sausage turned out to be very sweet, and the brown sugar it contains was a whole lot more prominent in flavor than the mango.
I pan fried the cut up sausage with onion, red and orange bell peppers, minced garlic, and lots of curry powder. At the end I added some chicken broth to form a shallow sauce.
 The more curry you add, the spicier it will get, or you can use a spicier type of curry? I can't handle too spicy, but for those of you who can, that might be the best way to go with this sausage to counter the sweetness. I might try a little paprika or something the next time...hmm. Really, this sausage is so sweet you might eat it with pancakes in place of syrup!
