Mango Salsa Taco Bowl Recipe

Mango Salsa Taco Bowl Recipe from

Now that I’ve made fresh mango salsa, I had to make myself a tasty taco bowl for dinner. Since I’ve given up dairy, my taco bowls have changed a bit. Gone are the days of cheese and sour cream, and without them a taco bowl can seem a little empty. But with all the colors on this plate, I don’t even notice the cheese being gone. Actually, I far prefer the taste of this vibrant dish!

This makes a minimum of 2 taco bowls. Most likely more, depending on your appetite.

*(8/2/2012) Note about taco seasoning: Some of you are asking how you can make your own because the ones you can find in your stores are full of a lot of junk. Understood. Here is one suggestion I left on Facebook for someone:

“Use a large pinch each of chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper. For a little extra kick, squeeze in a little lime juice (about half a lime – optional, but it has a nice flavor). That’s what I do when I run out. If you have it in the house, you could also add a pinch of cumin and maybe a little cayenne for a kick. The great thing about taco seasoning is it doesn’t have to be exact. So you can add all these spices and then taste and see if you want to add more of something. Custom tacos! Hope that helps.”

Enjoy the taco bowl recipe – and let me know how it turns out for you!
