YUMMY - Mango Tacos!!!

So for some reason the other day I flipped on a cooking show on discovery health. The name of the show is 'Just Cook This, with Sam the Cooking Guy'. I thought the couple of recipes I saw him do sounded good and even more were easy! I like easy yummy stuff. I found his website and he had some great recipes that I am going to try.

Anyway, I saw him make this one and it looked so good. I finally gave it a whirl a week or so ago and both Steve and I loved it!!!!

Fresh Mango Tacos
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
6 small flour tortillas
2 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
2 ripe mangos, peeled and diced small
Juice from 1/2 lemon

Combine cinnamon and sugar—mix well. Lightly butter each side of the flour tortillas and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Place tortillas in a preheated non-stick pan and cook on both sides until lightly brown. Remove to plates and top each with vanilla ice cream and some mango.

Drizzle with a little honey and add a squeeze of lemon.

Seriously ladies, this is super yummy and really easy!!!! I hope you all enjoy

The EXACT same thing happened to me a few weeks ago when I randomly flipped on this show! I saw the taco episode, it was the first time I saw his show, I hadn't even heard of it before but that episode hooked me and I set up my DVR to catch them all! The shrimp tacos he made I would do with chicken and the mango ones he made for dessert on the same episode are so stinking yummy, and the best part is they are simple and easy! I made some pasta he did in the next episode I saw and loved it. I think he's funny, too. I'm so glad you posted about it, I hope his show starts playing more often because right now it's only on Tuesdays.

jocelyn, I haven't been able to catch him again, what time is he on? I love how simple his stuff is from what I have found online as well!

Heather... I had to search for the show times because it was hard to find. It's on Tuesdays mostly (but not every Tuesday it seems like) in the afternoon around 4:00. (I'm not at home right now so I can't check the exact time.) I know it recorded today for me, waiting for me to watch. His stuff is awesome from what I've seen so far. Simple, semi-healthy, and delicious. I'm just hoping that it's all good and I didn't just watch the couple episodes that were the good ones. :)
