Shrimp Tacos

  • 1 lb. shrimp deveined, peeled, tails removed
  • 2-3 tsp Heath’s Blends Southwest Sizzler or chili powder and cumin if you don’t have this particular blend, but seriously get it…

  • 8 white corn tortillas
  • Shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • Lime wedges


  • Combine the water, oil, cilantro, green onions, garlic cloves, lime juice and salt in a food processor and blend on low until smooth (there will be some tiny pieces of cilantro, which is great).
  • Add the sour cream and pulse until it’s incorporated into the sauce and is creamy.
  • Meanwhile, place the shrimp on a plate lined with paper towels. Pat the shrimp dry and sprinkle the Southwest Sizzler seasoning over the shrimp.
  • Cook the shrimp in a pan with olive oil for about 5-6 minutes, or until the shrimp are cooked through.
  • Prepare each taco by placing the shrimp down the middle of a corn tortilla. Top with shredded cheese, shredded cabbage, and the creamy cilantro lime sauce. Add a squeeze of lime.
