Quick Shrimp Tacos Recipe

Friday, February 16, 2024
Shrimp Tacos are a quick and easy dinner recipe. Flavorful juicy shrimp, caramelized onions, red pepper, garlic, and Mexican seasonings are piled into corn tortillas. 

You can then dress your Shrimp Tacos with whatever you like. Some favorite toppings are Pico De Gallo, Mango Salsa, Habanero Pineapple Blueberry Salsa, Tomatillo Salsa, tomatoes, avocado, grated cheese, shredded lettuce, and sour cream.

My sweet husband made these last week for me and even took the photos. Why you might ask? Well, you see my darling daughter was helping rinse off the dishes after dinner and accidentally dropped a plate on my white corning ware baking dish. Oops, it's ok sweetie let Mom clean this up! You just go get ready for bed. I don't want you to cut yourself... Can you guess what happened next? 

No, I didn't go take a nice hot bath..Guess again.. No, I didn't curl up in bed with my cozy pajamas and read a good book.. Bingo, I sliced my right middle finger open up the side from below to above my knuckle. (Yes, I'm right handed.) This was followed by Lorna freaking out, "Mom should I call 911?" Me," no I will be ok please whatever you do don't call 911 for this!" 

Then I went on to spend the next 10 minutes trying to decided if I could just wrap it up real good and be on my marry way. Nope it definitely needed stitches!  Off to get stitches at the walk in clinic I went.  I won't go into detail because this is a cooking blog about how it looked but I went in to the walk in clinic 6 minutes before they closed and had my finger scrubbed out (the most painful thing ever) and 5 stitches put in. Now, I look like I'm giving the middle to everyone from all of the bandaging, please don't judge me if you see me. So needless to say the doctor wrote a note to my husband saying no dishes for 10-14 days. I'm really not to be cleaning either and it's really difficult to cook when you can't chop. So the kids and hubby have been helping out a lot!

Ok, now on to how to make Shrimp Tacos:

Pulled Pork Carnitas are a favorite way to cook a pork shoulder until tender and juicy in Mexican seasonings with citrus juice to brighten the flavor until it just pulls apart. Pork Carnitas are a favorite filling for pulled pork tacos, burritos, nachos, and enchiladas.

Pico De Gallo Recipe

Monday, January 8, 2024
Pico De Gallo has always been one of my most requested recipes. I usually take a large bowl to parties and potlucks. It's always one of the first things to get devoured. This Pico De Gallo has a simple list of ingredients but fresh squeezed orange along with the lime juice is one of the ingredients that makes this so addicting and why I always get asked for the recipe. Ripe tomatoes, shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, red onion, pickled jalapeƱos, fresh jalapeƱos, and cilantro give this Pico De Gallo an irresistible fresh taste that keeps you going back for more.

Other favorite dips we like to serve at parties like Super Bowl include Chili Con Queso, Habanero Pineapple Blueberry Salsa, and Greek Feta Dip.
