Perfect weeknight dinner - Shrimp and Mangos - YUM!

 

These babies do have a slight bite to them, but the great thing is that you can control just how much! Simply add more/less jalapeno, and choose to use a different heat of taco seasoning. It’s that easy! If you add a Chili Lime Cream Dip it will also help to cool it down a bit. BUT… the best thing about this meal is that it takes less than 20 minutes to create! Add some tortilla chips on the side to enjoy some crunch with your leftover salsa and you have dinner for you and your family.

Just the colors alone in this dish are enough to make anyone drool! I love how fresh and light this meal is, giving it a nice mix of heat and texture. This is also a meal that works great in groups! Something you can use for your next outdoor BBQ perhaps?

The kiddos got a kick out of the fact that we were eating FRUIT salsa for dinner. But hey, whatever works right? This is also a great meal that can be thrown together in a jiffy! Just prepare the salsa ahead of time, and then all you have to do is cook the shrimp up for a quick and healthy weeknight dinner. The salsa should stay well in the refrigerator for about 2-3 days.

    I just made this recipe for the first time. It was AMAZING and impressive though pretty simple. My hubby and I loved it and we are waiting for our son to have some. I will be making this all the time now for family and friends😍Thank you so much for sharing! Oh,I did use ChiChis green chili seasoning packet that a friend gave me. It compliments shrimp well. I also used two medium fresh jalepenos from hubby’s garden.
