Easy Mango Chunky Salsa

Adding fruits to a salsa is a great way to add a burst of flavor and freshness into a dish. For this mango salsa you will need of course a mango, shallots or onion, juice from a lemon, chopped spinach, sugar, salt and pepper. You can get creative with this recipe and add in some Jalapeño, chopped tomatoes, cilantro or your favorite salsa add-ins.

Quickly made Crema dressing

I personally love making a Crema dressing for tacos, taquitos, wraps and of course, fajitas! We’ve used sour cream in this crema for a healthy alternative. For this crema all you need is sour cream, lemon juice, taco seasoning, water, minced garlic, salt and pepper. This recipe is so good, it almost taste like a homemade ranch with a kick! You can substitute a lime for the lemon, add in some hot sauce or your favorite seasonings!
