You know how I feel about tacos. And if you’re new around here and you actually don’t know how I feel about tacos, let me assure you that I believe tacos to be the greatest invention and most wonderful edible creation in the history of the world and if they were to cease to exist I would instantly melt into a puddle of sadness and spend the rest of my days in misery.

Basically I think they’re pretty great.

3) i really love tacos a lot

4) tacos are generally healthy

5) i very much heart me some tacos

and so on and so forth.

These Cajun shrimp tacos with mango salsa happened this last week and they are easily one of my favorite kind of tacos ever because they are made with my homemade Cajun seasoning which I cannot get enough of. (Recipe for Cajun seasoning is in the recipe notes!) Top it off with fresh mango salsa and I’m one happy camper ladies and gentlemen. Oh and did I mention you can make these beauties in just 20 minutes?? That’s right, twenty minutes is all you need (if that) to have some Cajun shrimp taco goodness for dinner tonight. DO IT! You won’t regret it.

P.S. They are a bit spicy. kbye.
