"These are the best tacos I've ever had" - Sid Beck, my husband.

If that's not enough for you to try these out... Well, your loss.

If I'm being honest, I didn't really measure out any of the spices while I was making these. I gave the ingredient list my best guess, but you can't really go THAT wrong with spices. Hopefully they will turn out just as amazing for you as they did for us :)

There's something so special about the sweet and savory flavors of these tacos. The mango salsa and the creamy cilantro sauce perfectly compliment the sautéed vegetables and spices used in the recipe. If you want more protein, feel free to add some grilled chicken, fish, or beans. Any protein choice would taste amazing with the salsa and cilantro sauce!
