Spicy Shrimp Tacos

Do you have a love for tacos like I do? Tacos are a go to meal for us in our house. I can’t even tell you how many taco recipes I have. If I am being honest, I probably make tacos almost once a week. Hubs loves tacos too and they are so easy to make.

These spicy shrimp tacos are a breeze to make. Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl, whisk together. Add the shrimp and let it marinate for a little bit. While it is marinating, get your skillet heated. Cook the shrimp for about 3 minutes before flipping them over to finish cooking.

Building your tacos. Start with warm corn tortilla shells. Lay your shrimp in the middle of the shells. Next add your sauces and sour cream. Add some cheese and fresh cilantro and there you go!!
