Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

To start prepping the big move, we’re starting to clean out the fridge and cabinets. Using leftovers, we whipped up these chipotle shrimp tacos. If it’s one thing I love, it’s shrimp. We’ve been on a southwestern/Mexican kick lately and I wanted to spice things up by changing out our “meat.”

Be warned, chipotle seasoning can be spicy, however I can deal with the spice. I love the smoky flavor chipotle seasoning adds to a dish. Fun fact: while watching “Who Wants to be a Millionaire, I learned that a chipotle pepper is a dried jalapeno. I had to enlist Brian’s help to make this dish. I recently taught him the proper way to clean shrimp and let just say he’s been doing this wrong for sometime (see below for a how to clean raw shrimp). Brian’s mom and dad are not a fan of shrimp, but they loved this recipe. Something about the seasoning brings this entire dish together.
