  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat shortening with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping bowl occasionally. Beat 2 minutes longer. Add egg whites, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about one-third at a time, and mango nectar and 1/2 cup milk, about half at a time, beating just until blended. Stir in 2 tablespoons lime peel and the chile.
  • 3
    Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about one-third full.
  • 4
    Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla and 3 teaspoons milk with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. On low speed, beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
  • 6
    Cut each cupcake horizontally in half. On each cupcake bottom, spread about 1 tablespoon frosting; top with 1 teaspoon mango and 1 teaspoon coconut. Cover with cupcake tops. Frost top of each cupcake with 1 heaping tablespoon frosting. Top each with about 1 teaspoon mango and 1 teaspoon coconut. Garnish with lime peel.

Expert Tips

  • If fresh mango isn’t available, use purchased refrigerated mango found in jars in the produce section.
