Food Crush: Chipotle-Lime Shrimp Tacos

Watch me make this live on Nom!

Today is the start of Taco Tuesdays here at Margaritas On The Rocks! My Chipotle-Lime Shrimp Tacos are first on the list and absolutely delicious. Of course I used my Chipotle Sauce to cook my shrimp and give them a great flavor. For this recipe I wanted to create something that could be cooked in under 30 minutes but still house lots of flavor. I cooked these shrimp in a frying pan with olive oil. I brushed each shrimp with the chipotle sauce as they cooked. I coated the shrimp with the marinade at least three to four times as they cooked. During the cooking process I made sure to add lime juice to give the shrimp a burst of flavor.

I decided to serve them with corn tortillas, cabbage, cilantro, and avocado. I also suggest adding any toppings that fit your taste buds. Sour cream, Mexican crema, and cheese may also be great. I think this is a great meal for lunch or dinner. If you are in the mood for a little spice tonight try out this recipe; I’m sure you won’t regret it.
