Kung Pao Chicken Taco’s with Mango Lime Slaw

Kung Pao Taco

We blinked and summer passed. Time just flies by as we get older. To console myself I made and fell in love with these Kung Pao Tacos. They are sweet and spicy topped with a Lime Mango Salsa.

Seriously, where did summer go? I am thankful it was a mild summer with beautiful California days. I never stop being thankful for living here. I need to take advantage of the next few weeks and go to the beach and walk along the sand. Maybe even take Jack down and let him run around the sand.

Tacos are huge here in Southern California. Thanks to food trucks they come in many forms now. Since I don’t eat meat, I love this new turn. It’s fun to take a favorite flavor like Kung Pao Chicken and turn it into a new dish – Kung Pao Tacos! Shrimp would work well in this dish too! Old El Paso® Dinner Kits make it easy to throw these tacos together.

Prep everything before you start and this meal will only take about 15 minutes from stove to table. 30-minute meals are important once school starts and our schedules fill up!
