Shrimp Tacos with Avocado and White Corn Tortillas | Recipes | Budget Friendly Dinner Idea

Shrimp Tacos on White Corn Tortillas
Shrimp Tacos on White Corn Tortillas
serves 4

I don't like to use salsa on these tacos - I think the shrimp, avocado and pepper jack add enough kick!

1 pound of shrimp, peeled, tails removed
2 tablespoons of baja/mexican/taco spice (you can use any brand - there are a lot!) 
1 tablespoon of oil (olive, veg, etc.)

12 white corn tortillas
2 avocados
1 tomato
5 green onions
2 cups of pepper jack cheese

Toss the shrimp in baja/mexican/taco seasoning.  You can cook them outside on the grill (you may want to skewer them to make it easier) or inside in a grill pan or in a skillet.  Cook shrimp on high for 1 minute on each side.  Set aside in a serving bowl.

To prepare the tortillas, wrap them (all together) in a damp kitchen towel and place them in a warm oven on a baking sheet for 5-8 minutes or microwave for 1 minute. 

To make the assembling easy for your guests, I like to put all of the toppings on one platter.  It makes a very easy clean up - only one platter to wash vs. individual bowls for each topping.
