Cheater Key Lime Shrimp Tacos

I only say “cheater” because I didn’t make the yummy sauce for these tacos, Chef Rick Bayless from Frontera Restaurant in Chicago did…and I’m okay with that because with his help, I made dinner in 20 minutes.  Judge me if you must, but my belly is content and now I’m free to lounge on the couch…

  • 1 lb. 25-30 shrimp, deviened and peeled
  • 1 pack of Frontera Key Lime Cilantro taco sauce
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds and veins removed, thinly sliced
  • 1 Haas avocado, sliced
  • Fresh cilantro
  • 8 flour tortillas, fajita size
  1. In a large skillet or wok, heat 1 TBS of oil and saute the onion and jalapeno until softened.
  2. Add shrimp and cook until pink and heated through.
  3. Add simmer sauce and stir constantly until sauce is simmering and beginning to thicken.
  4. Serve on tortillas with avocado slices and cilantro.

  1. Presentation is really good, I want it now!

  2. Why thank you!

  3. Mmm, shrimp tacos! I’m always leery of packaged stuff, well I like my chips, and ice cream, and, hmm maybe I’m not so leery of packaged stuff!

    • I promise, these flavor packs are pretty darn good. I used one of the enchilada ones recently as well and it tasted so similar to a homemade sauce that I’ve made (that takes 2 hours, mind you) that I was actually kind of ticked. For the time savings, its worth it. Don’t get me wrong, I still like to make my own sauce though because there’s definitely joy in creating dishes from scratch!
