blackened shrimp tacos with chipotle aioli.





mmm, blackened shrimp tacos. i'll take two, please and thank you.

i could eat tacos all the time, especially if they taste like this. you can hold these in your hand, they take 10 minutes max to make, and the flavor is a force to be reckoned with.what more could you possibly want?
  trust me, everything about these tacos is a good (and easy) idea. just invest in some chipotle powder, fresh shrimp, and before you know it you'll have an incredibly tasty meal on your hands.

  3. That looks incredible! Although my favorite taco shop is only a 10 minute bike ride away (Taco Riendo...the Laughing Taco) I think I will have to try to make these. Shrimp tacos in my house would be the ultimate treat! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  5. You don't need to make the sauce if you can get your hands on Tulkoff's Chipotle Chili Aioli! Yummy!
