This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about tacos! And who doesn’t love tacos?!!? I don’t think I’ve ever met a taco that I didn’t like. These black bean tacos can be made in less than 30 minutes and are super simple.
The star of these tacos is the spiced mango. The spice I used is Tajin seasoning. Have you ever tried it? I saw Tajin at Aldi this week and decided to grab some. Our good friends recently introduced us to Tajin seasoning as a great addition to cocktails (think on the rim of margarita glass). It adds a nice salty lime flavor with just a hint of chili…not really spicy just more flavorful. Tajin is also a popular fruit seasoning, it works perfectly with tropical fruit like mango, papaya, and pineapple.
So we have black beans, spiced mango and now lets talk about the slaw. This cabbage slaw is basically just shredded veggies tossed with a simple vinaigrette and lots of cilantro. I went with rainbow carrots and cabbage. It adds a great crunch that I think every taco needs.
Feel free to add your other favorite taco toppings too. I can hardly eat a taco without avocado so that’s a must for me. I was dealing with some unripe avocados and saw on Pinterest (of course) that you can wrap an unripe avocado and put it in the oven for ten minutes and it is supposed to ripen. Well, verdict is that didn’t work. Has anyone tried that trick? Have success? Let me know.
I just stuck with black beans this time but I think this combo would be awesome with fish or chicken tacos too.
