Mango Chicken Nachos

 

 

MMMMMMMM MANGO CHICKEN NACHOS!!!!!!! I could eat these everyday. No, really. I’m serious. These are sweet deliciousness. So what if the wontons are fried and covered in cheese? Everyone needs something fried at some point in their life. And don’t lie and say you don’t like anything fried. Yes, you do. I don’t care how healthy you are. My husband actually got out of shape since having the baby, usually it’s while the woman is preggers, but I guess me throwing my guts up and not eating didn’t really give Cade any reason to go crazy. Well, since having sweet Claire I’ve been eating more and Cade’s been working out less. You wouldn’t know it by just seeing him, but he wants to get back on the ball. When he saw these he was like, “It’s fried, I can’t.” Then he ate them for dinner and again for lunch the next day. They were that good.

 

Let me just tell you, the sweet chili sauce with that kick of spice and the soft, sweet, juicy mango and the cheesy crunch of the wontons, OH SWEET MERCY! I love the bites with a big ol’ chunk of chicken. mmmm! I bet you could throw in a little pineapple and red onion too, if you so desire, but I like my salsa just like this.

 

Seriously, go get yo’ self some mangoes etc and make these this weekend. So worth the calories!!!!

 

Can You Substitute Orange Pepper For Red?

Orange bell peppers are slightly less sweet than red peppers.

Orange and yellow bell peppers can be substituted for red bell peppers.

 

Is Mango Good For You?

Mango is high in Vitamin C and Vitamin A.

Vitamin A promotes eye health.

 

Is The Fat In Avocados Bad For You?

Avocados contain both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Over 75% of the fat in avocado is “good” fat.

  3. I would love to win this giveaway and give the tickets to my mom and sister, who both live in Utah. My mom is going through a really difficult time in her life right now and could use a fun day out. This would be perfect.

  4. That salad looks great. Thanks for sharing the idea! I love coming to your blog.

  10. Sorry, meant to say ' Ok, stepping off my soapbox now.'

  11. Ok, those look amazing! Definitely trying them.

    On another note – PUH-LEASE, PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE, Don't become one of those blogs that have a giveaway for every other post! While I see nothing wrong with the OCCASIONAL giveaway, I love your blog because I know I will get recipes when I come here, not a million giveaways that I never win anyway. I've stopped visiting a few blogs because it seems like every post is a giveaway asking me to follow on twitter and facebook. Ok, 😉

  12. First of all – I'm totally making these. I'm a nacho freak, and these sound so good to me right now!! I've never been to the Expo before, but I've always wanted to go!
