Mango-Salsa Bison Taco


Taco Tuesday is a favorite in my household. Usually, we play it safe and use some ground bison and then add some generic taco seasoning and cheese. However, one of our raving fans sent us this recipe to spice up Taco Tuesday and make it a more memorable experience!


We love the creativity of adding a sweet and tangy mango to a somewhat spicy and well seasoned bison tip. Not only is the recipe brilliant, but the photo is pretty beautiful as well!
