Chili-Lime Guacamole Shrimp Tacos
– 1/2 pound raw shrimp
– 3 limes
– 1/2 tsp. chili powder
– Guacamole ingredients (try my favorite recipe here!)
– Romaine lettuce
– Shredded Mexican cheese
– Black pepper, to taste
– Flour tortillas
First, peel the shrimp and place them in a bowl. Squeeze the limes and sprinkle the chili powder to the bowl. Mix well and let marinate for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, make your guacamole. Try out my absolute favorite, easy-to-make fiery guacamole recipe here. You’ll never buy store-bought guac again.
Skewer the shrimp and sprinkle black pepper liberally over top.
Grill the shrimp for a few minutes on each side, just enough for them to curl up and turn pink.
As your shrimp are grilling, wash, pat dry, and chop up your romaine.
Then, heat up your tortillas. My favorite way is to place a few of them on a microwaveable plate, and then wrap the plate in plastic wrap. Microwave the tortillas for 30 seconds and they’ll be perfectly steamed.
Dress up your tacos with a layer of guacamole, a bed of romaine, grilled shrimp, and shredded cheese. Fold, serve, and enjoy!
The grilled shrimp are packed with flavor, perfectly marinated with the lime juice and topped with a bright kick of chili powder. The fresh guacamole and crisp romaine add wonderful texture and a great crunch.
These tacos are light, healthy, and bound to become a summer favorite in your home. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
