Last week, as Spring finally appeared to be here to stay, I decided I would make a dish that’s vibrancy (I think that is a word?!) would sum up the feelings of relief amongst most of us for the recognition that we survived the winter. I came up with this wonderfully bright meatless way of enjoying tacos. For some reason, I have not been craving meat that much lately, in fact, I think I went about three weeks without any! Plenty of fish, and plant proteins!
I absolutely loved how refreshing, light, and flavorful this meal was, and it will definitely be going on my make again this summer list. I hope you love it as much as I did!
I also used Pinterest to learn how to make the soft taco shells into hard shells, it was so easy, and I show you how to as well! 🙂
- Sweet potatoes are full of nutrition, not only are they great anti-inflammatory, but they are high in many vitamins, including B, C, and D!
- Mango is high in many antioxidants, and helps to prevent many forms of cancer
- Black beans are high in fiber and protein, as well as being a great blood sugar regulator and helping with digestive tract maintenance
- Avocados also help with reducing inflammation, and have more potassium than a banana, keeping those electrolyte levels high
What did you do to celebrate surviving winter? What is your favorite meatless meal?

We obviously think very similar, because we had tacos last night that had beans, corn, tuna, cucumber, tomatoes, some olive oil, cumin & salsa. This twist sounds delicious though. I'm glad you used mangos as i've seen something similar w/ peaches which is a no go since i'm allergic.
It was taco night at our house last night 🙂 Love the combination of mango and sweet potato. And edamame…kitchen genius!
I love the combo of black beans, sweet potato and avocado. I really should add the mango – it's funny, I love mango in sushi rolls but never play around with it at home.
YUMMMM I love these. I actually never make tacos and I don't know why… I love ALL of these ingredients so much. PS That is one good and colorful photo!!
These look amazing! I love using mangos in savory dishes – my mom used to top chicken with mango salsa. Definitely making tacos after this cleanse!
I love mango! What a delicious and colorful idea!
You are quickly becoming my go-to gal for recipes! These sound great. Will be adding them to my weekly menu line up this week!
Yum! I'm making portabello and pineapple tacos tonight with a tortilla soup! Seems like we're both in the Mexican mood 🙂
Wow, love this combo! We had fajitas last night and I am always reminded at what an easy and delicious meal it is! These tacos look the same way, love the idea of using soft tacos to make hard shells!
YUMMY! I love sweet potatoes! I never would've thought to put them in a taco! Awesome idea!
These look so yummy!!! I actually have 1/2 a mango in the fridge.. and an avocado.. and black beans 🙂 love how these are meatless!
These look incredible. I've been on a huge sweet potato kick lately (like, eating them 2-3 times a day), so this is definitely going in the rotation!
i have one word for you—> GENIUS! the kiwi would love this. maybe we need a taco tuesday night!
I absolutely love me some mango in recipes!! I have just pinned this recipe to Pinterest as I want others to see it too. Yum 😀
These look so good… I never think about mango until the last second… these will be SO refreshing!! I might have to make these Friday for Lenten dinner 🙂
That is so funny, your version sounds great too! I looooovvve mangos, and I always forget just how much I love them until I have them again! Give them a try and let me know what you think 🙂 Have a wonderful day friend!
Ahh damn, missed the boat with you! Yes, edamame is one of my favorite additions to meals, so full of nutrition, great plant protein!
Thanks Meredith, I really enjoyed the combination actually. I think mango adds a sweetness, and the silky texture,….mmmm!
Mango in sushi rolls?!?! I need to try this! Where?
I often forget about them too, enchiladas are so much easier to keep in mind, but I wanted to try the trick with making them into hard shells, and it worked! Thanks for the support Erin 🙂
Yes, me too….and its a great way to trick the sweet tooth right 😉 Ooooh that sounds yummy! I may have to give that a try!
Thanks Laura, I LOVE colorful things 🙂
Awww thanks Amanda, that made me smile 🙂 Let me see how you get on! We obviously have similar tastes 🙂
Oooooh yum! That sounds great too! Pineapple is so good! Yes, I think we have similar tastes by the sound of it!
Thanks Alex, I know, I used to have it a lot as a child, but forget about it more than I should. The tacos were surprisingly easy to make hard, took a few minutes!
Thanks Danielle, they were delicious! That is what blogs are for, sharing our ideas 🙂 I learn a lot from you!
Thanks Leigha, ooooh there you go! It was just meant to be! You have to let me know how you get on 🙂
Thanks so much Cassie, that is a real sweet potato kick!!! These should definitely be added in there! I still have to try them with almond butter!
Thanks Lindsay 🙂 Yes, I think Taco Tuesday should be on the cards, let me know how you get on 🙂
Thanks so much Jan 🙂 I hope others like it as much as I did!
Thanks so much 🙂 Yes, they are the perfect summer dinner…..or Lenten dinner of course! 🙂
Love the sweet potato mango black bean. I'm going to try that this week
Thanks Deborah! Please let me know how you get on 🙂
