Avocado Panko Crusted Mango Tacos

Taco Tuesday – every Tuesday should be a national holiday with PTO to celebrate. Tuesdays are typically my least favorite day because they feel like the middle child of the week. I created these Avocado Panko Crusted Mango Tacos last year and I come back to this recipe ALL OF THE TIME! This recipe is great for both vegetarians and non vegetarians.


Avocado Panko Tacos

BuzzBait is a little taco joint in Chicago that inspired this recipe. Unfortunately they closed in 2018! These are to die for – delicious and super easy to make. Seriously. The crusted avocado makes for a “meaty” base which leaves you feeling full by the time you think about picking up another taco. Use my homemade Peach Mango salsa to top these off!Try these now, and thank me later.
