Spicy Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

Spicy Chipotle Shrimp TacosTacos stuffed with seafood is always a healthy option on the dining table. The one we're making today include spicy shrimps wrapped in equally delicious, fresh, and fulfilling corn tortillas. We're preparing a much simpler version of these scrumptious tacos omitting the cilantro and jalapeƱo sauce. Still, they taste as good as the authentic recipe. I generally prefer to serve these tacos with a non-alcoholic beverage though you're free to include them as a starter in a cocktail party. The spice content can be adjusted as per your taste. To add more kick to the serving, squeeze extra lemon juice on top and combine it with a generous sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. Let's make these flavorful shrimp tacos.
