Andouille Chicken Sausage Tacos with Mango Pineapple Salsa


These incredible Andouille Chicken Sausage Tacos with Mango Pineapple Salsa can be on your dinner table less than 15 minutes from now. True story.

That is, assuming you already have the ingredients in your fridge. If not, pull out this week's grocery list, because I've got a few things you're going to want to add to it!

I am working with Al Fresco this month to share a few easy dinner recipes that will save your life on busy weeknights. The secret is to stock up on a few packages of Al Fresco Fully Cooked Chicken Sausages.

I've been buying Al Fresco chicken sausages (as well as a few of their other products) every time I shop for a few years now, and I can't tell you how many times I sighed with relief upon opening the fridge and spotting them sitting there all ready to heat and serve. In fact, when they reached out asking me if I'd like to work with them, I jumped at the chance to share a product I already knew and loved.

Made with lean chicken breasts and a variety of herbs, spices, and other fresh ingredients, these chicken sausages can be added to all your favorite dinnertime staples. Starting with a package of these cuts down dinner cooking time by about 15-20 minutes and makes clean-up so much quicker and easier.

Chicken sausages are amazing in these tacos (of course!), but I also often serve them simply browned in a hot skillet along with sauteed greens, roasted vegetables, or even on top of a salad. You can toss them with your fave pasta, add them to an omelet for "breakfast for dinner," or just tuck them into a roll with sauteed peppers. I used the smokey, spicy Smoked Andouille Chicken Sausage flavor for this easy taco recipe, but you could swap in your favorite flavor. Try these with the Roasted Garlic, Sundried Tomato, or Spicy Jalapeno flavors instead.

The Mango Pineapple Salsa I used to top these chicken sausage tacos is also super simple to make--basically just mix and serve! You can make this salsa a few days in advance, and note that the leftovers are pretty fabulous with chips as a dip, so you may want to double the batch for easy snacks all week long.

I serve these tacos on warm corn tortillas (pop them onto a hot skillet or even directly over the flame on your stove for a few seconds on each side), a drizzle of sour cream, and some extra limes and cilantro. Feel free to dress these tacos up with your own favorite ingredients--crumbled queso fresco? Pickled onions? Hot sauce? You can't go wrong!

If you want an even easier idea, serve the tortillas, chicken sausage, salsa, and toppings in individual bowls and let the whole family DIY their own perfect taco. Doesn't get any better than that!!

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 2-3 limes)
