Ingredients

Shrimp Taco Ingredients:

Chipotle Crema Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (or mayo)
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce (or 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Prep the slaw and crema: Prepare the cilantro lime slaw according to instructions. Combine all of the chipotle crema ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.*
  2. Cook the shrimp. In a mixing bowl, toss the shrimp with the taco seasoning, plus a generous pinch of salt and black pepper, until evenly coated.  Heat oil in a large non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Cook the shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes, flipping once, until they are opaque and cooked through.  Transfer to a clean plate and set aside.
  3. Assemble the tacos: Fill each flour tortillas with a generous serving of the slaw, a few slices of avocado, a few shrimp, a drizzle of chipotle crema and sprinkle of your favorite toppings.
  4. Serve. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

How to make chipotle crema by hand: If you would like to skip the blender, just finely chop the chipotle in adobo sauce and stir it together with the other ingredients in a mixing bowl until evenly combined.  Or if you are using chipotle powder, you can definitely just stir the ingredients together by hand.
