Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

We love mexican ... & eat it often.
Sometimes though, I want to mix it up a bit.
This recipe does just that ... a little added flare to the Mexican fare!

Coat skillet generously with cooking spray.
After it's heated, toss in the shrimp that's been seasoned with a dry chipotle seasoning ...
or use a mixture of cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper.
A minute and a half to two minutes is all it takes.

Start assembling these tacos on warm tortillas ... 
add shrimp, shredded cheese, diced onion, salsa, shredded lettuce, cilantro 
& chipotle sour cream {8 oz. sour cream with 2 tsp. dry chipotle seasoning stirred in}.

Serve with a wedge or lime {or lemon} to squeeze over top just before taking the first bite.

 For the shrimp:
  • cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle or cumin/chili powder blend
  • 1 pound medium shrimp (about 20), peeled and deveined
  • 8 flour {or corn} tortillas
The fixings:
  • 1 small onion,diced
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
  • shredded lettece
  • salsa
  • lime {or lemon}
  •  8 oz. sour cream, seasoned with 2 tsp. chipotle mix or cumin/chili powder blend
  • 8 oz. shredded cheese
