Easy Dinner Recipes
Well, the kids are back in school. Not mine. Those days are long over. However, I still need easy recipes. Some days I am content to spend a good hour or two in the kitchen and some days not so much. This easy shrimp taco recipes is for those days when I want an amazing dinner, and I want it quick and easy.
You can have these tacos on the table in under 20 minutes! Seriously.
Tacos are my go to easy food. With a good vegetable and/or fruit salsa, they are pretty much a complete meal. I don't make the kind of tacos that are loaded with cheese and sour cream (though there is nothing wrong with those) I stick to tacos that are a little more on the healthy side.
Easy Shrimp Tacos with Black Bean Mango Salsa
I've mentioned before that I am trying to include more variety in my meals each week. Trying to make sure I include beans and legumes, fruits and as many colors as I can, and eating a couple of meatless meals a week.
As alway, I used my Quick Pickled Red Onions (minus the cloves), that I always have in the fridge, instead of raw onions. You can also make a little extra of the salsa and spoon it over some brown rice for a quick lunch!
I found these tacos in Woman's Day Magazine.
These tacos are so easy to make!
- Use your favorite chef knife to chop the salsa ingredients and combine in a medium bowl.
