A few of my goals this summer are to make more connections, take well needed self- care breaks and try out lots of easy no-hassle recipes. Say hello to these tasty, easy-to-make and pool-party-friendly Summer Mango Chickpea Tacos.

Who says tacos are just for Tuesdays?! I recently joined in the ‘B3 Anywhere’ challenge from barre 3 (you can sign up and join me for the challenge here). Their ‘Summer Tacos’ recipe got me inspired to add some sweetness to one my favorite foods – chickpeas.
