GUACAMOLE,MANGO TACOS


Guacamole in any food is a favourite in my

home ,and I have posted recipes on it .Today it’s

a Mexican dish in my style ,everything made

from scratch even the taco shells is homemade

(lockdown is training our hands ).This is the

first time I have made at home ,and in the

process learnt a method of storing the shells.

(pre-made) .I found this recipe in my old books.

This tacos can be made with countless fillings,

Vegan or non vegan ,with various sauces,salsa ,

and good to be served as a snack or a meal with

decked up healthy fillings .I served this for

breakfast with guacamole and mango with

cheesy mustard sauce.Made few in conical

shapes and the basic tacos shape.

It was a crunchy delicious breakfast !
