With school about to start and summer coming to a close I thought there's no better time to share one of our favorite quick meals.
Quick Shrimp Tacos With Pineapple Mango Salsa. 
There's something amazing about the combination of shrimp with the sweet pineapple, mangos, spicy jalapeños and cilantro with a squeeze of fresh lime. 
These are a staple in our weekly meal rotation and I thought there's no better time to share this favorite then now.
We seem never to have leftover's when we make these and second helpings disappear fast.
If you're looking to be a little saucy why not make a few of these Pink Grapefruit Lime Margaritas With Agave to really kick it up a notch and set the mood! Especially if you have company coming.Quick-Shrimp-Tacos-With-Pineapple-Mango-Salsa-Pink-Grapefruit-Lime-Margarita.jpg
Pink Grapefruit Lime Margarita's  are defiantly on the all time favorite cocktails list! 
If you're really looking to round out your dinner how about Restaurant Style Mexican Rice to serve along side.

Dice mangoes and pineapple.
Add mangoes, pineapple, cilantro and fresh squeezed lime into a medium sized bowl. Stir until combined.Quick-Shrimp-Tacos-With-Pineapple-Mango-Salsa-Jalapeno.jpg
