Good. Didn't use chili sauce. Topped with sour cream and Mexican red sauce.

Yum, yum. Skipped the Thai chili sauce, used corn tortillas, and ate the leftover salsa the next day. I made this recipe twice in three days. Delicious!

I loved the idea of this recipe, but it seemed a little flat-tasting when I made it. So I added juice from a whole lime, a little salt (maybe 1/4 tsp) and some fresh ginger (1 T). Awesome! This will be a summer favorite!

does anyone know if the nutrition information includes the taco shells?

Tasty! I used jarred jalapenos and white onions. Used a whole avocado, I'm not quite sure how many to use for half a cup but the salsa came out almost like a guacamole.

Took the advice of fellow reviewers and skipped the chili sauce. These are FANTASTIC! Very summer-y and restaurant-quality taste profile.

This is DELICIOUS! Such a refreshing summer dish. Love the Mango and Avocado in it.

These are simply amazing! Only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is because I forgot the chili sauce! We used cod since it was less expensive and white onion instead of red. I also substituted lime juice for lemon...the lime was a good compliment to the mango! My 5 and 2 year old loved them too!

We loved them. We did use the Thai Chili Sauce. It is not a really hot sauce, it is more sweet than hot. I personally prefered the tacos without the Chili Sauce. I felt it covered up the wonderful flavors of the Mango Salsa.
