To make it extra special we make our own homemade corn tortillas.

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

  • 2 lbs of peeled, deveined shrimp
  • 1 chipotle in adobo, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • Juice and zest of one lime

I usually rinse and drain the shrimp before beginning, just to ensure it’s clean.

Serve this on a fresh made, warm corn tortilla with a bit of white rice, salsa, a slice of avocado and a dollop of sour cream.

If you have any left over shrimp, serve it over rice for a quick lunch the next day.
