There’s an unexpected but quite delightful surprise hidden in these tacos: slivers of golden, nectar-sweet mango. The fruit is tucked into a crisp and tangy red cabbage slaw, providing a dazzling contrast to the spice-rubbed warmth of the tilapia and chipotle smoke in the sour cream drizzle. And even better, all that goodness comes together in a flash: you can have these tacos on the table in just 20 minutes.
