I mentioned on Saturday that I’m addicted to the new New Kids on the Block song. Well, five days later and that still hasn’t changed. Its been playing on repeat. For Days. And I’ve probably watched the video about 20 times. Thankfully 21 month olds have no concept of something being “overplayed”. Im sure Ill be pretty sick of it, pretty soon.
I have been so crazy obsessed with mango’s and coconut lately. I swear its been the main pieces of my diet lately. I just cant.get.enough! Then yesterday I saw this delicious looking smoothie from Liz, and new I wasn’t alone. (Im probably drinking that as you read this!) I’ve gone through more mango’s in the last few weeks than I have ever had in my life. I’m eating them as is, making salsas with them, putting them in smoothies, cocktails, you name it..its pure bliss.
You can only imagine how excited I was when this little lunch came together last week. Coconut Chicken Tacos with a Mango Salsa and a tangy Avocado Green Sauce..ahh the angels are singing. Matches made in heaven people! This was so perfect! My hubs and I ate it for both lunch and dinner, in the same day. Yah, it was that.good. Oh and then we proceeded to make it again over the weekend…No, we’re not obsessed or anything. 😉 The tropical taste of coconut covered chicken, smothered with a sweet and spicy mango salsa and dripped with a tangy avocado green sauce..the combination was perfection in every bite. Seriously. I can’t exaggerate these things. Do it.
I made the salsa and green sauce when I threw the chicken in its “marinade” and let it all sit in the fridge for about an hour before cooking up the chicken and throwing them all into low-fat, reduced-carb, whole wheat taco shells..c/o Trader Joe’s. There is no cheese in these tacos, I know sinful, but I’m trying to make things a little lighter these days, and I PROMISE you wont even miss it or notice it gone. However, if you must add some cheese, Id recommend Cotija cheese. Enjoy these friends, they’re my new favorite taco. And that’s saying something! 😉
