Enjoy a taste of Mexican food with these healthy and scrumptious Crab Mango Enchiladas.
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and I have been reliving a cruise we took with a stop in Cancun. We took a cooking class and made a delicious fish dish with a fresh mango sauce. It was scrumptious so I decided to play with seafood and mango and came up with Crab Mango Enchiladas. Each bite is a little taste of Mexico.
I have noticed I am continually thinking about a vacation. This lovely thought has been creeping into a lot of my recipes and posts lately. I hope I am not driving you crazy. The thought of some sunshine and somebody cooking and cleaning for me, it throwing me into a tizzy. After this past year, we really need a vacation and a break from stress. My hubby seems to have recovered from his mitro valve repair and life is starting to calm down. I am starting to feel “lighter”, unfortunately only figuratively. Hopefully soon the scale will actually show some “lightness” too. Anyway, these enchiladas are light and have a lovely sweetness from the mango.
I like to buy my lump crab meat at Costco, particularly I like Blue Star Crab. It is reasonably priced for crab (yes, crab is expensive) and the quality is top-notch. It will actually last quite a while in the refrigerator so I try to keep some at all times. Crab is low in fat and calories. I so love food that tastes delicious and I can have a large portion of. The slight sweetness of the crab goes so well with the mango. I balance the sweetness with a little spice from chili powder and tartness from tomatillos. Did you know that tomatillos are actually from the gooseberry family? They are such delicious little green fruit.
Crab Mango Enchiladas are the perfect main dish for Cinco de Mayo. I’ll be sharing a few more dishes for the perfect Cinco de Mayo celebration. So get out the tequila. Make yourself a margarita and start dreaming of a Mexican vacation while making these Crab Mango Enchiladas.
