It’s mango time!

IMG_20141211_173204_438Well actually, it’s never REALLY mango time where I live – we can’t grow them here – but it’s really nice to have a little taste of summer in the middle of winter!  I found this recipe on and then altered it a bit.

Corn and Mango Tacos

1 small package frozen corn, thawed
1 15 oz. can hominy, drained and rinsed
1/3 lb cotija, or mild cheddar or monterey jack, cut into small cubes
juice from 3 limes (about 2 1/2 tblsp)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
2 scallions, thinly sliced
12 tortillas
3 ripe mangos, cut into slices

  1. Combine corn, hominy, cheese, lime juice, cayenne, cilantro and scallions in a bowl.
  2. Heat tortillas in a microwave or fry them.  Fill with mango slices and corn salad.  Enjoy!
