    Thanks Larry! We’re big fans of individual tastes when it comes to salsa on our tacos, so we have removed the reference to mango. We’d love to hear what kind of salsa you think works best with these!

    You should include mango salsa among ingredients. As of now, it comes as a surprise at the end of your recipe
