This recipe looks fabulous but where can you get compliant tortillas with no oil and non GMO?

Mango is better than tomato due to acid, and black beans would use half can, and 1 avocado, due to Ckd, have not seen this salsa in stores but will look next time…..

Delish! I bought Paul Newman mango salsa, which turned out to have sugar and corn syrup. But it was yummy and I didn’t use much of it. Not sweating the small stuff.

Wish you would make your recipies printable or at least copy and paste. I prefer to have all my recipies in one place.

Up top under the big image and above the recipe description, there is a link to ‘print/save recipe’. If you click that, you should get a PDF of the recipe that you can then print.

This was very good… I agree with another review that the mango is a bit overpowering. Next time I think I’ll use less mango and more bell pepper; possibly chop & sauté mushrooms to add into the mix. I did not buy mango salsa & glad I didn’t because the frozen mango I used was more than enough mango flavor.

Go up to the top and in the search box type “Mango Salsa” and a delicious recipe for mango salsa will come up. It’s also in the FOK recipe app.

This was very good. I used frozen mango and diced it, and the red pepper, to approximate the size of the black beans. I omitted the cilantro, which my partner dislikes, and spread guacamole on the tortillas in lieu of going out to get avocados. I put mango salsa on my tortillas, while my partner used regular salsa. We both thought this was very good. In my opinion, the cilantro would be excellent in this recipe, if you are a cilantro fan. This is definitely a keeper.

So good! Made it this evening, but substituting pineapple for mango since the mango was not ripe. Can’t wait to try with mango.

The mango salsa makes this dish. It is good! But if you are using it, leave the mangoes out of the filling and try using a yellow or orange bell pepper and diced tomatoes instead of mangoes. It is so pretty, really delicious and you get plenty of mango with the mango salsa.
