Prep: Rinse and dry the produce. Zest the lime into a small bowl, cut lime in half and juice into the same small bowl. Slice, peel, and chop the mango into 1/2 inch cubes. Chop the cilantro. Slice the avocado in half and cube. Drain the can of diced tomatoes.

2

Place the diced tomatoes, garlic cloves, brown sugar, lime zest and juice, oregano, chipotle adobo sauce and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a blender or food processor. Pulse a few times to combine until a chunky texture is achieved.

3

Crumble the tempeh into a small bowl.

4

Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a medium sauce pan and add the crumbled tempeh. Cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Add the sauce and simmer on low heat until mixture is warm throughout, about 5-10 minutes.

5

While tempeh is cooking, place small skillet over low heat and warm tortillas, about 30 seconds per side. Toss together the chopped mango, pineapple and avocado cubes. Add a pinch of salt and stir once more.
