Some may call this dish “Grilled Mango Tacos,” but I prefer to call it a “Vegan Mango Lover’s Dream.” Not only are the mangos front and center in this taco, they’re also a key ingredient in the mysterious dream sauce. This dish is perfect for friends with any dietary restrictions – it’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and completely plant-based.
This authentic mango salsa recipe is straight from Mexico City! A tasty blend of tomatillos, onion, chipotle and mango makes for a sweet and spicy salsa, perfect for dipping salty chips.
