Shrimp Tacos

I am pretty excited about this post, mostly because deciding to do it meant I got to make and eat my most favorite thing ever: Shrimp Tacos.  I make these as a special treat when I am feeling like a Margarita and need a Mexican dish to accompany it.  I don't usually go for fried or breaded versions of anything, but these are really delicous .. I promise to come back with a grilled version at some point.  

I kind of just made this recipe up after having it at one of our local Mexican restaurants and becoming obsessed with it.  It's pretty easy and the only thing that really requires work is mixing some ground Chipotle Chili Pepper into some of my husbands homemade ranch dressing. Just mix a tiny bit at a time and make sure to taste it along the way to make sure it's to your liking, it really ads some zing to the tacos.  

Next I just bake the shrimp in the oven according to directions (I buy a frozen bag of Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp from Kroger).  While the shrimp are in the final stages of baking, I warm//brown the corn tortillas to get them warm and crispy.  After that, I load the crispy tortillas up with shredded lettuce, add about 3 shrimp per taco (don't forget to cut the tails off), top with a bit of shredded Mexican cheese, and a drizzle of Chipotle Ranch.  SO EASY and SO GOOD.  Sometimes I whip up some guacamole too, but at the last minute, I realized my Avocados had gone bad (Avocados are very fragile creatures - one minute hard as a rock, the next minute brown).  Voila! Shrimp Tacos .. give them a try, they won't disappoint.
