Shrimp Tacos Recipe

If you are getting tired of your average tacos, I highly recommend trying these shrimp tacos. These tacos are a great treat for summer and won’t disappoint those who love a little heat. These tacos include a combination of shrimp, chipotle peppers, bacon, and onions. You can adjust the amount of heat by adding more or less canned chipotle chilies. You can also add a little of the adobo sauce to the shrimp mixture. This recipe calls for 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Just to clarify, this means 3 peppers, not 3 cans. You can add whatever optional condiments you want. The tacos are garnished with cilantro and lime juice but what I did was mix cilantro, diced avocados and lime juice in a bowl and used that.  Enjoy.

    Shrimp tacos are my FAVE! So light and summery. We have a great place here in Alexandria, VA that does their shrimp taco with red onion echabeche (pickled onions) and an avocado crema sauce and they are *OUTSTANDING.* Adding bacon is an idea that never occured to me…but I like it:)

    I made this last night for my wife and me. We both had it leftover for lunch today. When she got home tonight she said this was the “best” thing I have ever cooked for her. So Bobby take that as a huge compliment. I consider myself a pretty good cook. I did have some fresh corn that I added, but either way it will rock. Thanks.
