Chipotle Lime Fish Tacos With Avocado And Mango

chipotle lime fish tacos with avocado and mango We love tacos and to celebrate that summer is still in full force, at least here in Florida where the kids are still on vacation mode for 2 more weeks, I created some fish tacos filled with summer flavors.  Tacos are so versatile and easy to make and the ideal food for throwing a summer fiesta or get together. Weekends are always very festive during summer and my parents usually come over. My kids love sharing time con los abuelos and I always like to make something special but don’t have much time so tacos are always a great option. This weekend I wanted something a little different and decided to create some delicious fish tacos with a sweet and spicy twist. I combined delicious avocados from Mexico, fresh mango, green chili with a healthy chipotle crema for a refreshing fish taco filled with tropical flavors. ingredients for chipotle lime fish tacos with avocado and mango I ate fish tacos for the first time in Mexico City a long time ago and I really enjoy making dishes that remind me of my travels.  The sweetness of the mango and the creamy texture of the avocado create a great balance with the spiciness of the shrimp and the chipotle crema and the fresh taste of the cilantro.  These tacos are super healthy and they are a good size. Because I am using the Old El Paso flour tortillas which are larger than the corn ones 2 tacos where enough to fill me up. chipotle lime fish tacos with avocado and mango As I was making these I also got some inspiration from the delicious recipes on the Old El Paso website and the Avocados from Mexico website. I can wait to make the Grilled Steak Fajita Boats which look amazing and if you are an avocado addict like me your will feel like you died and went to avocado heaven when you see all these avocado recipes, that go well beyond a rocking huac, yeah there is everything from summer avocado salads to avocado soup!  You really need to check them out. Now on to the Chipotle Lime Fish Tacos recipe, which by the way would also be great made on the grill!

    Oh definitely easy beef tacos….for two reasons: (1) they’re beef, and (2) they’re easy. You don’t want me cooking difficult things. They generally end up inedible.
