Shrimp and Mango Tacos

8 Servings of 1/4 cup of shrimp filing. Weight Watchers Points + 2 ~ Calories 82.3 ~ Fat 1.2 g ~ Carbs 11.2 g ~ Fiber 2.0 g ~ Protein 7.6 g *** Entire TACO 5 points!

Shrimp & Mango Tacos were inspired by my hubby.  I needed some inspiration to be creative with dinner and while texting my husband back & forth, I asked him to give me inspiration.  He said “make something with mangos and jalapenos”  So, this is what I came up with &  it was delish!  Mexican Food is really yummy but making it “figure friendly” is always a challenge.  The nutrition below is for the Shrimp & Mango mixture only.    I ONLY use La Tortilla factory low carb/high fiber tortillas since they are WW 1 pp+ .  I do realize that they are difficult to find….so this is why I only calculated the shrimp mixture.  My entire taco was 5 points, and I only ate one because it was so filling.  The leftovers tasted even better because all the flavors married together.  We had the leftovers about 3 days later and I added rainbow salad mixture to my taco for a little crunch.  Try out my easy homemade guacamole recipe to top off your taco!  ENJOY!
