Holy cow, let me start of by saying I have missed you all! I have been so busy with school and work I have had no time to write. So since I have been gone I thought I would share with you what my husband and I made for dinner last week that was so unbelievably tasty. MANGO SALSA ON SHRIMP TACOS!
I was trying to think of something quick and easy to make since I had worked that morning and had an exam (shocker I know) that next day to study for. Tacos are pretty easy so I went to the grocery store and winged it!
What you will need for the Mango Salsa, (or could be considered Pico because it is chunky)
- 2 mangos
- 3/4 red onion
- 1 red bell pepper
- about 2-3 jalapeno
- a bunch of cilantro
Now, take the list and dice everything into small pieces and give a good mix! My husband took over all the chopping and the mixing so I’m sorry for the lack of pictures! He said he only used a little salt, not much, and let me say it turned out perfect! Also just squeeze a half of lime in the mix! We got really lucky the mango was actually really sweet! We let it sit in the fridge while we cooked the shrimp. I just cooked the shrimp with Cajun seasoning to give it some spice.
We used corn tortillas and added avocado to the tacos, we also had a side of refried beans! But here’s a tip, always buy the vegetarian kind, because the other ones have LARD in them! yes LARD, you are welcome, now you are going to read the label when you go the store next. Oh yeah, I also put feta on my tacos, just because it sounded good! Alright there you are, just in time for taco Tuesday! And a side note I took my favorite back of blue corn chips when I was done eating my tacos and started chowing on the bowl of mango salsa I had leftover. SO DANG GOOD!!
I am sorry again for my lack of posts, but school is important! Heres a SOD too for you to jam to today!
Happy Day Everyone!
