Chipotle Shrimp Taco

A good shrimp taco just can’t be beat, and this Chipotle Shrimp Taco with an easy cream sauce is an ideal choice for a light meal everyone will love. The light seasoning blend of the cream sauce pairs perfectly with a corn tortilla and the seasoned shrimp to give you a meal that is satisfying while not being too heavy or hard on your diet.

I love that making this shrimp taco recipe means that even the picky eaters in the house will try things like cabbage. A simple cabbage cole slaw to top this taco is a great way to encourage your kids to try a vegetable that they otherwise wouldn’t. With the spices and cream sauce, the cabbage topping provides just the right crunch to complete this simple recipe.

Serve our chipotle shrimp taco with a side of rice, beans or by themselves with plenty of the cole slaw and pico de gallo. Don’t forget to toast your corn tortillas lightly before you serve your tacos to bring out the roasted corn flavor that will pull this easy taco dish together for the perfect light meal.
