Spicy Mango Chicken Sausage Tacos with Blackberry and Cucumber Salsa

Spicy Mango Chicken Sausage Tacos with Blackberry and Cucumber Salsa


What a week! So if you didn’t read my previous blog post I will catch you up on the week’s festivities.  After being swept away by the Kendrick Lamar Grammy performance I decided to restructure my content and recipe development this week to pay homage to his song “The Blacker The Berry”.  As a result blackberries took the spotlight this week and boy did they shine in these four new recipes.

Spicy Mango Chicken Sausage Tacos with Blackberry and Cucumber Salsa

I’m a huge fan of tacos; they are probably the one food type that I east most often out of anything else. I love coming up with new taco combinations, so using tacos for this challenge was right up my alley. For this occasion, I used Aidells Spicy Mango with Jalapeno sausage and topped it with bright blackberry and cucumber salsa.
