Fiery Mango Black Bean & Avocado Tacos

Indulge in the lively and straightforward joy of mango tacos – a blend of sweetness and spice that is bound to captivate your taste buds. These sweet and spicy delights are perfect for a crowd-pleasing vegetarian weeknight dinner, turning any day into a fiesta of flavors.

A Taco Lover’s Dream

Whether it’s taco Tuesday, taco Wednesday, or taco Friday, there’s no denying the allure of stuffing delectable ingredients into tortillas. For me, tortillas are a kitchen staple, and they play a crucial role in the third installment of this week’s meal plan. Here’s a glimpse of the ingredients that brought these tacos to life:

  • A chunk of green cabbage (a clever use for leftover cabbage!)
  • Black beans
  • Mango
  • Avocado

Combined with remnants from the Cucumber Nori Wraps – the last half of an avocado, mango, and spicy mayo – these ingredients, along with tortillas, a sprinkle of cheese, cilantro, and a serrano pepper, culminate in a delightful taco creation.

The Art of Tantalizing Tacos

To enhance the flavors, a quick slaw emerges from tossing cabbage with lime juice and salt, while the black beans receive a zesty lift from lime juice and chili powder. For a playful twist, consider substituting mango salsa for diced mango and cilantro.

The secret to these tacos’ irresistible taste lies in the spicy mayo, a leftover treasure from the nori wraps. For those seeking a “healthy” mayo option, Sir Kensington’s Avocado Oil Mayo is a game-changer, offering a delicious blend of high-quality ingredients. Vegans, fear not – opt for vegan mayo or whip up the vegan version of the chipotle sauce for a delightful substitute.

Bringing It All Together

With tortillas as your canvas, assemble these tacos with cabbage, avocado slices, black beans, diced mango, cilantro, a dollop of spicy mayo, and a sprinkle of feta or cotija cheese. For an extra kick, serve with sliced serrano peppers and additional sriracha on the side. Complete the experience with lime slices for that perfect finishing touch.

In conclusion, savor the fiery goodness of these Spicy Mango, Black Bean & Avocado Tacos – a testament to the simplicity and excitement that a well-crafted taco can bring to your dinner table. Prepare to embark on a flavor-packed journey that will have you eagerly anticipating your next taco night!
