I decided to substitute canned pineapple tidbits, drained, for the mango and that definitely cut the cost. <br/>I also added in two roma tomatoes for more color and nutrition. And I used whole wheat tortillas.

This was very good, although a little more pricey than it was labeled but not exceedingly so. I was able to find all of the produce at a Hispanic grocery store for much less than it would have been at the 'regular' store. And since I use dried beans anyway, it wasn't too bad cost-wise. A nice change from sandwiches and the kids loved it. We'll make it again.
