Chile Lime Grilled Shrimp Tacos
Adapted from Sandra Lee

Prep Time:15 minInactive Prep Time:30 min
12 tacos

1 1/2 pounds frozen, shelled and deveined large shrimp, thawed
1 (12-ounce) bottle Mexican chile and lime marinade
I also use a mix of lime juice, toasted sesame oil, chili, onion, and garlic powders.
Cooking oil, for grill
1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped ( I used a few dashes of homemade hot sauce instead)
1 tablespoon adobo sauce from previous pepper. (Also omitted when using hot sauce)
12 corn tortillas ( I also like to use whole wheat sometimes )
1 (6-ounce) bag shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup frozen chopped onion, thawed
1 cup prepared guacamole
1 lime, for garnish
Marinate the shrimp in the chili and lime marinade for at least 15 minutes. I have done it for close to an hour but would not go longer.

Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.

Brush the grill with a paper towel that has been soaked in cooking oil. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and place on the grill. Grill the shrimp until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Mix the sour cream with chipotle and adobe sauce.

Wrap the tortillas in a damp towel. Place on a plate and microwave for 45 seconds.

Build the taco with the shrimp, cabbage, onion and guacamole and top with the chipotle sour cream. Garnish with lime wedges.
