Chipotle Shrimp Tacos Recipe

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

Servings: 4 (serving size: 2 filled tacos)

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile powder
  • 32 peeled and deveined large shrimp (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 8 (6-inch) white corn tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and cut into 16 slices
  • 3/4 cup salsa verde

Procedure:

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; add shrimp, tossing to coat.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp mixture to pan; cook 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from heat.
  3. Heat tortillas in microwave according to package directions. Place 2 tortillas on each of 4 plates; arrange 4 shrimp on each tortilla. Top each tortilla with 1/4 cup lettuce, 2 avocado slices, and 1 1/2 tablespoons salsa.
  4. Beer note: An orange peel-infused Belgian white beer will cool the palate. Hoegaarden White ($8/six-pack), with its cloudy appearance, citrusy-fresh taste, minimal bitterness, and refreshingly tart finish is delicate enough for seafood and excels at extinguishing heat.
